At the head of each Unit are “Young Leaders”. The Young Leaders are the older and more experienced boys and girls who have shown responsibility and a desire to lead. They are carefully selected by the leadership group and are sent on a national Young Leaders’ training course.

The roles of the Young Leaders include management of a food storage facility, management of the food collection teams, running special projects and more. When a Young Leader turns 18, he or she assumes the title of “Leader” and joins the ranks of the SAHI leadership in his or her region.
