“The most precious thing we have in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is our children and our youth,” said President M. Russell Ballard, acting president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, after sharing a message about a program that provides tools to help parents and leaders support children and youth of the Church as many areas begin to come out of the pandemic.

In the virtual event, “Supporting Children and Youth: A Broadcast for Parents and Leaders,” available beginning Sunday, June 6, 2021, President Ballard and other Latter-day Saint leaders spoke to parents and local leaders from around the world on how to create meaningful opportunities to help Latter-day Saint youth and children continually develop faith in Jesus Christ.

“Who are they? They are sons and daughters of God. What is their potential? Unlimited,” said President Ballard. “We’re raising up the future leadership of the Church.”

In addition to President Ballard, Elder Quentin L. Cook, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and General Officers from the Church’s youth, women and Sunday School organizations also participated.

The new Children and Youth program was first announced in November 2019, but its implementation was unexpectedly interrupted when COVID-19 impacted the global faith’s members worldwide.
