The National Spiritual Assembly is pleased to invite all Bahá’í youth across the United States and Alaska engaged in undergraduate studies to participate in the series of enriching seminars offered by the Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity (ISGP)—in collaboration with the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States.
Purpose of the Seminars
The seminars are intended to build capacity in individuals and to create spaces for learning about the betterment of society. The purpose of these intensive seminars is to “raise the consciousness of youth about the importance of engaging in action and discourse directed towards social change; to develop their capacity to reflect, to analyze, and to learn from action; to explore elements of a conceptual framework for contributing to the advancement of civilization; to provide them with tools to understand and analyze the culture in which they are immersed as well as the content of the university courses they are studying; to help them assume ownership of their education; and to assist them in their efforts to acquire the kind of knowledge that will enable them to live productive and meaningful lives.” (from a letter from the National Spiritual Assembly)
