Learn More About Isaiah 43 Parenting & Mentoring

Isaiah 43 is a parenting and mentoring program that provides services to families, church parishes and communities that strengthen their capacity for peacebuilding. Youth and families are empowered to be peacemakers, to be active in promoting peace in their neighborhoods and to live by the values of love, peace and forgiveness.  

The program was developed to help youth, families and parishes strengthen peacebuilding skills through mentoring activities, parenting fellowships, family support, ministry development and community collaboration. Watch our video to see the program at work in our communities.
