Regardless of our age or capacities, we can all contribute to the betterment of our community. Baha’is are engaged in this community-building process by participating alongside others in grassroots efforts such as:
Study Circles to build capacity for service by exploring the application of the Baha’i writings to our individual and collective lives
Devotional Meetings are hosted to strengthen the spiritual character of a community by providing a space for collective worship
Youth & Children’s Classes which contribute to the spiritual and moral education of children and youth to build their capacity to serve as agents of change in their communities
Many individuals who have participated in this community-building process have gone on to accompany others in doing the same. Some have gone further and joined the Baha’i community, participating in its efforts to bring about individual and social transformation.
You are invited to participate in this community-building process by contacting a Baha’i community close to you.
“The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds…”
In February 2013, the Universal House of Justice announced a series of youth conferences to be held around the world. Thousands of young people from villages and neighbourhoods spanning every continent gathered to consult on the ways in which their generation can contribute to the spiritual and material well-being of their communities.
This series of short films captures the insights and conversation among participants as they explore some of the themes that are central to the process of community building.
The words of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, “God is the helper of those souls whose aim is to serve humanity and whose efforts and endeavours are devoted to the good and betterment of all mankind”, inspire the hearts of many youths, who are collectively striving to translate their aspirations into reality.
