The Empower Program
Healing The Wounds of Trauma

THE YOUNG PEACEMAKER
This curriculum, written by Corlette Sande, empowers students to understand and respond to conflict in a Biblical manner. Because problems and conflict are inevitable in each person’s life, it is crucial that these youth be equipped with the skills necessary to understand, respond to and overcome conflict.
(3) Leadership Development & Discipleship
Owing much to the acclaimed teachings of John Maxwell, this curriculum was written and developed by a Congolese survivor of war for the youth of DR Congo. Through mentoring and lessons on key principles of leadership, youth are empowered to become leaders. Alongside practical opportunities to grow, youth are inspired by examples of great leaders, like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr., who overcame adversity to lead and inspire generations.
