The Elementary School Division was formed in late 1993. The group was formed in response to parents of elementary school children in the SGI-USA who wanted a place where their children could gather with other children who are SGI-USA members. The purpose of the Elementary School Division is to encourage friendships among the children and to teach the children the basic teachings of Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism and the spirit of the SGI peace, culture and education movement. There is an annual nationwide conference at the Florida Nature and Culture Center for ESD members and their parents to teach the basics of Buddhism to the ESD while letting them make friendships with other members their age.
