Transformation for Peace

Transformation for Peace (TFP) is a Baha'i-inspired summer programme that offers Junior Youth a fun and spiritually uplifting opportunity to create a community, based on the guiding principles of unity, justice, diversity, and consultation.

A tight daily schedule is organised that includes academic study of the Baha’i teachings, creative expression through arts, and guided interactive consultation. Participants form strong friendships with others from around the world - friendships that can last a lifetime.

The overarching goals of the Transformation for Peace programme are to help the Junior Youth self-evaluate and discover their own potential, to develop their participation in community-building core activities upon their return home, and to assist in their preparation to accept their spiritual responsibilities upon reaching the age of maturity.


The programme is held at the Townshend International School campus, in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of the Czech Republic in the heart of Europe, and is organised by a caring team of experienced Coordinators and dynamic Youth Animators.
