Who We Are
FYCSE is the “Family, Youth and Children Spiritist Education” Department of the USSF. It was created in 2019 to address the specialized needs related to Spiritism education of youth, children and families.
Mission & Goals
The FYCSE department focuses on the unique needs of teaching Spiritism to children, youth and families, the skills needed to understand and apply the principles of Spiritism to our family life, and ways of dealing with our life experiences in the context of our family and the community.
This department will work with Spiritist centers and groups across the USA to identify ongoing needs, develop and centralize resources and provide opportunities for exchange, networking and training. Additionally, it will represent the USA at an international level.
It also hopes to further unify the Spiritist centers and groups across the USA by building bridges and collecting information that will help in the dissemination of Spiritism.
“[…] moral education… consists in the art of forming character… is the sum of acquired habits”

- What would be the result for society if family ties were relaxed? “A magnification of selfishness.”
