Young Life RWANDA Go. See. Engage.

Why an Expedition to Rwanda?

Experience. Travel with Young Life to see Rwanda up close: the country, the people, the ministry. Young Life Africa invites you and your family to have the trip of a lifetime.

Engage. Groups will be hosted by local staff & leaders, spending time alongside ministry outreaches in communities where Young Life is active and growing today. Personally see where leaders do ministry and witness how they show up in a teenager's life.

Explore. A new country. A different continent. Remote cultures. People and places where God is moving like never before.
