The Church is moving forward on its new global initiative for children and youth that will become available to millions of Latter-day Saint children and youth beginning in January 2020. It will replace the current scouting, Personal Progress, Duty to God, and Faith in God programs.
The initiative will provide children, youth, families, and leaders personalized opportunities to grow spiritually, socially, physically, and intellectually through meaningful activities, service, gospel learning, and inspired goal-setting. See the overview video below:
“This is going to be an exciting, wonderful enhancement to everything we have done before,” said Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “This new initiative is not only going to point them all to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, it’s going to give opportunities for large gatherings and personal development through goals and achievement of goals.”
The new initiative will allow local leaders and families to customize their weekday activities, service projects, camps, and other activities to meet the needs of children and youth rather than follow prescribed requirements.
The new Children and Youth initiative is being tested and refined in locations around the world.
Information at ChildrenandYouth.ChurchofJesusChrist.org will be updated as the implementation date approaches.
