C.I.T.Y is an acronym for Catch & Inspire Them Young

The C.I.T.Y Summer Leadership School is organised by The Eagles' HOPE Charity Foundation aka H.O.P.E (Helping Other People Excel), the charity and community development initiative of the Covenant University Alumni Association. Over the past three years, we have engaged over 500 volunteers and scores of corporate partners to reach over 7,000 teenagers with our award-winning leadership development programmes.

In 2012, at the maiden edition, we accepted 300 teenagers and 80 volunteers for a free residential summer camp that spanned ten days (Download C.I.T.Y Camp 2014 Report ). This year, we have decided to scale up the impact of the summer program from one location to 4 locations (1,000 participants, 200 Volunteers for 10 days).
Your generous donations would enable us to offer this free life-transforming leadership training to the young leaders of our society. Remember that 50% of Nigerians are below the age of 18 years- help us Catch & Inspire Them Young...

The Impact Of Our Collaboration...


  • The 2014 edition of the Residential Camp ran from Saturday, July 26th 2014 to Sunday, August 3rd , 2014.We hosted 200 teenagers between the age brackets of 13 –18 years (inclusive). These students came from private and public schools, as well as other youth-centred institutions such as youth correctional facilities and faith-based institutions.. The theme of CITY 2014 Camp was “The Leadership Revival II".
  • We believe that people are key to the development of every home, every society and every nation. This world needs leaders, not necessarily those who occupy position of power, but who have uncovered their gifts, talents, mastered self and are geared towards positive contributions to the lives of others.
