Welcome to the Emaho Youth Program

Our youth classes strive to teach the essential points of Buddhism through storytelling and art, in a simple and fun way that will help children apply the teachings to everyday life. Class meets once a month and is taught by a volunteer teacher. Children of all ages are welcome.

See the Calendar for specific dates and lessons.
