Amie Buhari


Amie started in youth work at 16 years old, when her pastor appointed her assistant leader on a Sunday school weekend away. She has over 28 years of experience of youth work and management from various organisations including local councils, theatres, environmental companies, churches, schools, and youth clubs.


In 2007, Amie founded and became the CEO of the The Hebe Foundation, which helps young people to realise and utilise their God-given talents. As a youth specialist, Amie is often asked to comment and advise on youth matters by the media and other organisations. Within her Baptist church, she has served as Deacon, Worship Leader and Drummer.


Amie specialises in facilitation and strategy around Purpose and Vision, and Diversity, Inclusion and Culture. She has been awarded twice for her leadership skills as a ‘Wise Woman in Leadership’ and through the Prime Minister’s ‘Points of Light’ award. Amie is also an accomplished actor and writer.

As we begin to reimagine how we do church and engage with the community in this new season, we need a place of study that provides youth leaders with tools for changing times — tools that are rooted in Christ, and are effective for life today. CYM provides fertile ground for new leaders to learn and grow.
