Burundi Leads the Way in Mentoring Young Leaders

An ongoing Discipleship and Mentorship program for young adults started in 2008 in Burundi, East Africa, that aims at equipping the participants in Leadership, Spiritual & Personal Development, Ministry, Social and Life skills. Each of the leaders are handpicked from various Youth for Christ programs; halfway through the process they introduce their mentees to the program. At the end of two years each young leader is expected to be a person of integrity, be in a leadership role within Youth for Christ and serving and influencing their community for Jesus Christ.

The first class of nine leaders recently graduated and three of the graduates: Leila, Jean Paul and Alice left for an academy in the United Kingdom for a two year Theology degree course.

A second group of nine leaders have begun the two year process.
