What is Pebbles to Pearls?

  • A program for groups of 11-15 year olds (junior youth) to think critically about the world around them and to explore what it means to make good choices in their own lives;
  • Assists junior youth to work as a united group to identify the needs of their communities and conduct projects to address them and contribute to social change;
  • Assists junior youth to discover their unique talents and capacities, to prepare for their future and to strive for intellectual and spiritual excellence;
  • Builds reading, writing and math skills through a series of books with stories of young people their age around the world.

 

Who are Animators?

  • Someone roughly between the ages of 17 and 30 who acts as a trusted older friend and mentor to the 11-15 year old youth in their community;
  • Someone who thirsts to feel the joy of their own personal growth through helping their younger peers through a challenging transitional stage of their lives;
  • Someone who guides their younger friends through loving friendship and patient support rather than parental instruction or rigid rule-making;
  • Someone with a hopeful attitude towards the world and who longs to contribute to making their communities better through nurturing the younger generation.

Organizer

Wordswell Association for Community Learning

Wordswell Association for Community Learning represents an ever-expanding group of friends, families, neighbours, and community members who are dedicated to making a positive contribution to society. We see the members of our communities as protagonists in a process of material, spiritual and social transformation, and not as passive beneficiaries of projects carried out by others. For this reason, many of our programs aim to build capacity in people – with a special focus on youth – to become active agents of social change.
