Youth Converts Foundation is a registered non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of the youth in Sub-Saharan Africa through the use of sport.

The youth of Sub-Saharan Africa are extremely disadvantaged, and there is an essential need for services and programs that will give them the opportunity to create a future for themselves. 

The use of sport to address such issues as economic development, ethnic violence, disability, and infectious diseases cannot be underestimated.


Educating young people through reading programs, leadership training, community development, and conflict resolution can prove to be very valuable in the Sub-Saharan region.

Through Youth Converts' programs, we are opening doors for development, creating pathways to peaceful co-existence, and building the foundation for efficient new leaders in the Sub-Saharan region.

The programs conceived at Youth Converts aim to strike at the very heart of those issues that prevent young people in this part of the world from creating a future for themselves.
