Vice Pres. of Dominican Republic Teams Up with Church Leaders to Create Program Inspired by “For the Strength of Youth


A new Dominican Republic program teaches youth how to live productive, safe, and happy lives, and it drew much of it's inspiration from "For the Strength of Youth."

In a partnership to promote strong values while preventing high-risk behavior among youth, Church leaders and Dominican Republic Vice President Margarita Cedeno unveiled on January 26 a project entitled Mis Normas, or My Standards. The project includes many of the key principles found in the For the Strength of Youth booklet.

A traveling exhibition highlighting the Mis Normas project and its principles was recently introduced at the Dominican Republic Children’s Library in the nation’s capital.

Vice President Cedeno was joined at the event by Elder Richard J. Maynes of the Presidency of the Seventy, along with Elder J. Devn Cornish and Elder Claudio D. Zivic, General Authority Seventies and members of the Caribbean Area Presidency.
