Leadership Development

The Principles We Teach

In all our teaching, whether formally or informally we strive to teach and model
the "First Principles" of Haiti Share

  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Mental Focus
  • Clear Communication

We also strive to impart other essential values such as humility, hard work, responsibility, service, courage and endurance, faithfulness and love.

Always remember the humble beginning of this ministry and God is raising you guys up to be his hands and feet in this challenging land. You guys are the change our nation is greatly in need of."
...from Dr. Julio Volcy, Executive Director of Teen Challenge-Haiti

Team Projects

Team participation provides strength and support for its members. It builds communication skills. It gives members experience in planning and carrying out team outreaches to children and adults.

Being a part of a team also provides a network of contacts which we hope will aid team members in obtaining a job. The team is an ongoing “family” in which members can remain as long as they have the desire to do so.

Youth Leadership Classes
