#YouthInTheSpotlight - The Lead Me Movement Breaking Cycle of Crime

Written by: diannem

The Lead Me As I Lead You is a Movement targeted at young Africans, particularly ex-offenders with the aim of exposing them to life changing opportunities in leadership, education, entrepreneurship, mentorship and plainly being active citizens of the country and contributors to its development and that of other people.

On Friday, Youth Day in South Africa, Lead SA was invited to a special dialogue between ex-offenders and inmates at the Leeuwkop Juvenile Correctional Center.

The theme of the day was to acknowledge past errors, to seek forgiveness, and to make the decision to change their lives around by looking past incarceration.

Watch the live feed below to listen to the 6 ex-offenders and offenders who joined us on the day to speak about their experiences that landed them in jail in the first place, and how they pulled themselves out and back into society.

You can contact us the movements' leaders via their Facebook page or contact them directly! Founder: Tatana Tinyiko‪/Terrence Hlatywayo Email: iamtinyiko87@gmail.com
