Help Youth develop their Moral and Spiritual Compass
Compass is a DiscoveryBound program for high school students (grades 10–12) focused on spiritual exploration and connection with their Christian Science peers. The program spans one school year (August through April) and is supported by trustworthy adult role models in an environment that is safe for exploring teens’ questions and deepening their understanding of how God provides guidance in their lives.
A group of 12 Christian Scientist teens, led by two adult Guides, come together for three retreats: Fall (4 days), Winter (5 days), and Spring (4 days). Between retreats, the guides hold monthly web hangouts exploring a range of relevant topics through engaging and fun assignments. Additionally, guides serve as role models for their teens, staying in touch with them and supporting them through their school year.
