The Earth Power organization provides youth education starting at the age of 6 and is aimed to raise and form influential citizens, creating a new elite together with the further implementation of them into the institutions of power. The system is divided into levels named after the animals: Ant, Snake, Pike, Cat, Greyhound, Owl, Falcon. Every level consorts with the rank in the concept of active citizen.

After the age of 16 the participants of Earth power receive the rank of “citizen” and need to have appropriate characteristics. Further movement through the levels depends not on the age but on the extent of succeeding in getting the knowledge, skills and characteristics. Participants continue their individual development (from the citizen to active citizen) and professional development (to influential citizen) in the sphere of state and social governance.
