Programs

For Youth:

The youth culture of today will determine the future direction of humanity. Many great leaders in history developed their value system and moral compass while they were young. That is why BFAI puts a strong focus on providing opportunities for young people to develop their character through various educational programs. BFAI runs various programs like the Core Values Academy (from Kindergarten to High School students), The Core Values for Life (College students and Young Professionals), The Leadership Task Force (Youth Leadership Program), Hands of Peace (Youth Community Service) and Experiential Outdoor Education.

The Core Values Academy (CVA) is a weekly educational program with age-appropriate curriculum for students of pre-school; Kindergarten; Grades 1 and 2; Grades 3 and 4; Grades 5 and 6; Middle School and High School. The four objectives of the CVA program are to:

  1. Ensure every child feels that they are a precious person, and has a sense of God-given destiny in life.
  2. Ensure every child constantly strives to be a more caring person, and experiences family as the school of love.
  3. Ensure every child develops healthy daily habits for their success in life.
  4. Ensure every child serves their community through their unique talents and abilities.
