Youth for Christ South Africa

Kwazulu Natal

Youth for Christ in Kwazulu Natal mainly operates in Durban and Pietermaritzburg. Like other Youth for Christ Centres, YfC KZN gives hope and development to young people:


Change Agents


This is a schools based ministry team of young people. They reach peers through the performing arts and classroom facilitation, teaching life skills in schools, raise HIV / AIDS awareness to promote positive behaviour change.







Young adults between the ages of 18-25 years are taken in on a 10 month internship programme. During the Internship program interns are trained and serve children and youth in the communities, shelters or on the street. The program provides opportunities and a platform for spiritual growth.


Khayalethu and Tennyson House


Khayalethu (in Pietermaritzburg) and Tennyson House (in Durban) serve children and youth struggling with unhealthy lifestyles from life on the streets.  Prevention programs take place in communities to strengthen families and keep them together.




Khayalethu has a boys and girls shelter and Tennyson House has a girls shelter which provides care and support to children as they are prepared to return to their family or placed into alternative care.


Youth Development Centre -International Volunteers


YfC KZN has international volunteer opportunities for young adults wanting to work with at-risk and disadvantaged youth. For more details go here.
