Kerus Institute

Kerus Institute was launched in the Spring of 2012 with the purpose to train highly skilled moral leaders who will positively influence their workplace and local communities.  Our vision comes to life as we inspire and equip individuals and leaders to develop professional skills, personal wellness and moral responsibility, elevating their personal and professional impact.

Kerus Institute leverages international partnerships and professional experts in medicine, education and organizational development to partner with South African professionals to bring about positive change.   Our work focus is three-fold: 1) life skills training for youth and adults, 2) leadership training and coaching 3) community development initiatives.
