Over 87,000 youth drawn from tertiary institutions in the country, under the Compassion International Ghana (CIGH), a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) would undergo mentoring and training program at this year’s leadership summit at Koforidua.
The 5-day tertiary students' summit which was aimed at impacting the youth with valuable witness to become members, volunteers and disciples to their fellows as agents of change, would treat key topics on discipline, community development initiatives, mentoring and relationship talks.

In her opening remarks, the National Director of CIGH, Mrs. Gifty Dansoah Appiah said, the NGO for the past three years had rolled out leadership summit packages targeted at tertiary students to prepare them to lead themselves and lead the process of change.
She said the youth were transformed through CIGH programs with "the expectation to transfer same as they journey to become change agents to their families and communities" explaining that, the annual program was aligned with the National Agenda of empowering the youth as change agents for families and communities.

Mrs Dansoah Appiah expected that the students would reap the benefits from the investment made for the conference, and charged them to take up leadership roles, provide solutions to challenges in their communities and rededicate their lives to Christ.
The Area Head of the Koforidua Pentecost Church, Apostle Samuel Osei Asante encouraged the beneficiaries to be available to serve others, and live a consecrated life.

On her part, a beneficiary of the program Ms Suetor Princess  Selassie of the Jayee University College said she looked forward to meet with mentors and hoped to have one role model as a personal mentor to guide her through her career.

The NGO operates in about 200 clusters in the Greater Accra, Eastern, Ashanti, Central, Brong Ahafo, Western, and Volta regions.
