Leadership Development - Compassion International

Leaders encourage, set the example, have innovative ideas, and are passionate about making a difference. Through the Leadership Development Program, Compassion-assisted students are trained and encouraged to use their God-given talents to make a difference in their communities. Students in the Leadership Development Program are grateful for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to escape poverty.
