In 1969, the Bahai'i faith celebrated their 152nd anniversary. The theme of the celebration that year was "Baha'u'llah--His Challenge to Youth," referring to the young Iranian merchant who founded the Baha'i faith in the 19th century. 1969 was considered "youth year" for the Bahai'i, and the theme for the year was "Youth for One World."
The Bahai'i faith has a strong focus on empowering youth, stemming back to its inception. It began when a young Iranian man declared his beliefs, which were quickly spread by the local youth. Since then, the younger generations have been at the forefront of efforts to spread his teachings.
