Re: Junior STF Kick-off Workshop Additional Announcement
Dt: July 15, 2004

Dear Blessed Central Family,

We are pleased to announce the Junior STF program, the first ever nationwide Second Generation adolescent leadership training program, which was created by Hyun Jin Nim. We will be kicking off this program with a 2 week workshop in August of 2004. This program will also be launching internationally in Korea, Japan, and Europe this summer. Many of you may have already heard one of our presentations or heard even a little about this new program. Please forgive us for the lateness of this welcome letter as this program is very new and we wanted to make sure that most people formally heard our presentation before sending this letter out. Please also note that we have made two changes.

1) The workshop participation has been expanded to all those who are entering their Junior and Senior year of high school or Freshmen year of college (as of Fall of 2004)

2) The workshop registration deadline has been extended to July 20th.

Our kick-off workshop will take place in the first half of August. The theme of our workshop will be "Building a New Culture of Heart for the Settlement Age through embodying Core Values." Participants will get a feel for what the Junior STF program is and learn about the new ways to participate and lead upcoming Second Generation activities. It will start with the STF International Assembly in New York City where STFers from all over the world will gather together. Afterward, there will be 3 days of Service for Peace activities, 3 days of Adventure Activity, and it will end with 3 days of fundraising. In addition, more than 60 second year STFers will be helping to staff this workshop. We hope you will experience a transformation through this workshop!

* Please note that this workshop will also be held in conjunction with the STF kick-off workshop, which means all new STFers must attend this workshop to start off their STF year.
