ECHO Youth Development is a registered non-profit organization (Sec 18(A) 930033233; 2001/02573308) founded in 2001 to provide a support system for vulnerable youth in South-Africa. High School Youth and Young Adults from different cultures live together in 13 houses, called Echo Communities. We are based in Pretoria but there are also smaller ECHO Communities in Johannesburg, Centurion and Cape Town. ECHO Youth Development hosts weekly youth programs and free counselling services at a number of schools.



more info on WHY WE TRY and WHAT WE DO


“ECHO Youth Development echo’s the very heart of the Gospel in so many ways. It is a community where the message of Jesus is not only proclaimed but also lived.They practise the basic principles of a life of simplicity and sharing as seen in the early church in Jerusalem. This community gives new meaning to the idea of unconditional love for everyone. I don’t have enough words to express my excitement about this ministry.”
- Stephan Joubert (E-Church)


“All people, especially youth in need, are embraced at ECHO with the love of Jesus. They care, empower, and inspire youth to start a new life. They don’t give up on vulnerable people and leave them to fend for themselves. If you journey with the Echo Community you will hear the echo of His footsteps.”
- Eberhard Bertelsmann (Judge)

Our motto: 

Don’t tell them Jesus loves them, ‘till you are ready to love them too . . .

Thought for the day

Hier is dit nie van belang of iemand Griek of Jood is nie, besny of nie besny nie, andertalig, onbeskaaf, slaaf of vry nie. Hier is Christus alles en in almal.
