Building leaders of integrity, so that they will become the committed fathers and servant leaders needed to rebuild their nation.
Haiti is a broken nation. It is a land of intense poverty, political instability, corruption, and massive unemployment. This situation as been going on for generations even though millions and millions of dollars have been poured into the nation.
What can we do beyond relief that will break this cycle and help move this nation towards restoration?
"Building godly leaders of integrity in targeted communities so that they will rebuild the cities of Haiti that have been devastated for generations.”
Fundamental Principles of HTC
Young men age 16 to 24: Over 80% of outreach and aid programs in Haiti are for women and children, young men’s issues are not being confronted and the challenges of the men increases the burdens and sufferings of the women and children.
Residential Program: The HTC 12 to 18 month residential program is built upon a foundation of discipleship, and teaches life skills, provides vocational education and leadership training. It equips young men so they are empowered to change and freed to make meaningful choices.
Targeted Communities: Students are selected from the same community so that these young men will work together in community transformation projects, train other young men in their neighborhood, and hold one another accountable. Collaboration with HTC alliances and partners provides support and opportunities for service, internships and jobs within these targeted communities.
Haitian Lead: Haitian Executive Director, Dr. Julio Volcy was born in Haiti and understands what it is to be a young man in Haiti with no role models, no direction, no purpose, but his life was changed by someone who invested in him.
This is now his calling, to mentor and to spur growth in young men; growth through transformation in their relationship with God, restoration in their valued purpose, commitment to service to others and integrity in stewardship.
