The purpose of the junior youth group is to help adolescents develop a sound moral structure or a sound moral compass, help
them begin to learn how to express themselves, and direct their energies towards service to the community.
"Specifically, the courses of the institute are intended to set the individual on a path in which qualities and attitudes, skills
and abilities, are gradually acquired through service - service intended to quell the insistent self, helping to lift the individual
out of its confines and placing him or her in a dynamic process of community building." ~ The Universal House of Justice
