Leading Young started as an 8-week leadership program based on a book of the same title by the ICC Nairobi Senior Pastor, Rev. Gibson Anduvate to equip young adults on principles of values-based leadership and adding value to humanity.
It has now grown into a values based Leadership training and development program with a key focus of developing effective leaders who possess strong values for good governance.
Leading Young targets a cohort of young individuals elected into public offices such as Governors, Senators, Women Representatives, Members of Parliament and Members of County Assembly.
This program is made possible through a partnership between Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association – KYPA, Kenya Young Members of County Assembly Association, Ford Foundation and ICC Nairobi.

"The youth are the trustees of our country's posterity. We do not want a generation growing up wanting to get even."
