On May 8, 2018, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced a worldwide initiative for children and youth to begin on January 1, 2020. This new initiative focuses on helping young people follow the Savior as they grow spiritually, socially, physically, and intellectually.
To help prepare children and youth, ages 8–18, parents, and leaders to implement this initiative, they are invited to two events:
- Class time in local units on Sunday, SEPTEMBER 29, 2019, to view prerecorded presentations featuring President M. Russell Ballard, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
- Broadcast on Sunday, NOVEMBER 17, 2019, with Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and the Young Women, Young Men, and Primary General Presidencies.
Additional details will be made available through Church communication channels as the date approaches.
