Early Birds Club (EBC) Kids and Teens are to empower children across the world to become purposeful and goal-driven citizens.
We aim to create a whole new generation of stable and purposeful people who can make great contributions to this world.
Kids and teens of today’s world are exposed to a lot of bad habits, gossip as well as violence at times. Social media networks are often misused by children in the name of entertainment. This leads to a lot of insecurities that accumulates both from the world outside and societal pressures. EBC helps children (kids and teens included) to find their true selves, to express themselves freely without fear of being judged and to develop a positive attitude towards the world, and not based on emotions. EBC empowers children to be responsible;responsible for themselves, their close ones, the environment and the whole world.
EBC for Kids and Teens are platforms for children of the world to come together and become powerful humans, rooted in positive values and ethics. The club encourages children to become early risers, as it is scientifically proven that the mind is capable of deep and profound learning, being fully aware and focused, in the early hours between 3 AM to 6 AM. A powerful morning routine is prescribed consisting of an intense invocation, gratitude affirmations, daily quotes for contemplation, simple yogic exercises, and time for self-reflection.
EBC Kids (5 – 12years) program has grown organically from a daily morning routine to a full-fledged meaningful program for the overall well-being of kids including physical, mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our program inculcates positive values and brings out the best in each child based on their inherent talents. Children engage in a daily activity that teaches them life values in a fun way thereby empowering them through entertainment. Weekly online programs with renowned authors/artists/entertainers/educators/dignitaries expand their imagination and inspire them. The focus of EBC Kids is on entertainment and empowerment of the kids.
EBC Teens (13 to 23years) is all about empowering teenagers to become purposeful citizens of the world by engaging in interesting workshops, fun activities, uplifting discussions, meeting interesting dignitaries and taking up social causes. Teen program is for the teens, by the teens, and from the teens, supported by parent volunteers. The focus of EBC Teen is on enhancing creativity and empowering the teens.
