Global Youth Leadership Institute – Chiquila, Mexico
Beginning in the summer of 2014, our youth pastor, Brian, and his wife, Rachel, helped found the Global Youth Leadership Institute. With its inaugural run in Chiquila, Mexico in the summer of 2015, the summer-long leadership bootcamp for potential-packed teens from impoverished areas sets the stage for each student to pursue their passion & develop their potential for a better future. Brian & Rachel served as the Program Directors for the Institute, serving on location in Mexico, during the summers of 2015 & 2016. In July of 2015 & August of 2016, EBC sent a team of excited servants from our congregation in Lynn to join the Institute for one week & help lead a VBS for the local children as well as take part in service projects for the community & music classes for local teens!
