Spencer Park Youth Group has made its mark as the only group in WA to participate in the Global Drum Prayer Circle.
On August 30, the children took part in the worldwide event at the exact same time as other participants across the globe and it was broadcast live in native American reserves.
The group decided to get involved in the Junior Youth Empowerment Program after watching a video online.
The program aims to bring youth of different religions together and is run by the youth themselves.
SPYG animator William Johns said the children had decided to join the worldwide drum circle.
“Turning decision-making over to the youth is part of empowering them, and empowerment is at the heart of the program itself,” he said.
“The program seeks to release the power of youth aged 12, 13 and 14 . . . and direct it towards service to humanity.”
Mr Johns said the Junior Youth Empowerment Program was developed in Colombia by university professors. “The youth movement is highly decentralised and has spread to over 200 countries around the world,” he said.
