    Methodist Students Society is one of the formations within the Youth Unit, ecumenical in nature - operating in tertiary institutions in Southern Africa. The Methodist Students Society seeks to unify and empower students at tertiary level and beyond, by ensuring gender balance. We achieve this through participating in student ministering and interacting with other structures of common interest by bringing diverse religious views together to develop and proclaim a holistic understanding of the gospel to students and friends of Methodist Student Society through programs.

    Our primary advocacy is in the student community, alumni and the community at large. We advance the prophetic voice on leadership development, women empowerment programs, human rights programs, evangelism, community involvement, camps and theological reflections of issues.
