Self-Realization Fellowship Programs for Youth

How-to-Live School 

Youth Programs  

“It isn’t academic education alone that makes people happy. It is ‘how-to-live’ education — how to develop a harmonious, moral life, stronger will power, and spiritual understanding — that will bring happiness.”  

— Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda felt deeply for the welfare of children and took a lifelong interest in their all-around education. Carrying on in this tradition, Self-Realization Fellowship continues to offer a variety of How-to-Live School programs that teach young people how to live a balanced life of meditation and right activity. SRF Programs for Youth

SRF Sunday Schools, teen programs, and summer youth programs provide children with a solid spiritual and ethical foundation on which to build throughout life. Emphasis is given to the practice of the science of meditation taught by Paramahansa Yogananda for personal experience of God. Children are shown how to develop moral character and the noble qualities exemplified in the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita, such as faith in God, respect, kindness, consideration for others, courage, and evenmindedness.

These qualities then act as spiritual building blocks for the right development of a child's character and help to establish positive habits such as self-discipline, service to others, truthfulness, and the use of common sense — as countless participants over the decades have attested.
