HOW WE PREPARE LEADERS

Compassion's Youth Development Program provides youth ages 12 and older with customized training and educational paths according to their own unique potential, and God-given talents and purpose.

Our prayer is that each young person finishes well in the Compassion program, equipped with the knowledge, skills, abilities and behaviors that allows them to succeed and have a sustainable way to support themselves.

Your donation will help a student develop impactful Christian leadership skills and help them achieve their dreams.

Kevin is a teenager in a community in Honduras, where trafficking, drugs and dangerous conflicts affect so many youth.

Kevin started attending the Compassion Child Development Center in his community, and was able to attend a vocational school to achieve his dream of becoming a mechanic and supporting his family.

This young man was able to escape a path of poverty and hopelessness, and realize his God-given potential.
