Six years ago, on May 29, 2011, SGI President Ikeda presented the “5 Guidelines for the SGI-USA Youth Division.” In an accompanying message, he writes, “The power to move the times always comes from achieving a transformation right where you are” (May 20, 2016, World Tribune, p. 3).

5 Guidelines for the

2. Be the youth of America who create an exemplary youthful Soka Gakkai with the unity of many in body, one in mind!
