Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Juvenile Justice Ministry

Helping incarcerated youth or youth on probation to gain the necessary mind--set and associated skills to avoid and reject a lifestyle that involves crime or illegal behaviors. This most certainly included consideration of their spiritual well-being and a potential personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Additionally, Youth for Christ's Juvenile Justice Ministry provides after-care mentoring to serve as a type of diversion program, but also to empower youth who are reintegrating after release from custody. Staff help youth find academic, employment, and spiritual assistance with ongoing mentoring relationships.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Incarcerated people

The Next Step Program is designed to help students succeed in school and in life. A “mentor” is a trusted guide that can be counted on to be a safe place to encourage, support, direct, and help another be the very best that they were created to be. Whether helping students with their homework and studying for tests, or navigating the tricky thoughts and emotions of a teenager’s life, our mentors are trained to know how to help the students we work with discover, develop, and maximize their God-given potential so that they can experience life to the fullest in their lives.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Point Break is a day long workshop designed to:

• Promote resiliency among students. Resilient students display social competence, problem solving skills, personal responsibility and a sense of purpose and future.
• Reduce campus violence as students choose conflict resolution & respect for others.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Change doesn’t happen overnight. But how do you know if you are moving in the right direction?

The therapists at Family Concern Counseling work hard to provide a safe, confidential, and respectful environment for clients to discuss and work through their challenges and feelings. We realize that no problem or pain is trivial and understand that everyone struggles with the process of change from time to time.

Our therapists work from a holistic model and provide clients with tools to develop their emotional, social, relational, spiritual, and physical well-being.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Adults

Campus ministries combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools. Like every ministry of YFC, Campus Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.

Population(s) Served

Trained staff work with school districts and school sites to implement various restorative practices. This includes, but not limited to, circles, restorative questions, peer mediation, restorative conferences, and more. These staff conduct classes, seminars, and provide guidance to help sites implement these practices for a cultural shift away from punitive, and toward productive.

Children and youth

City Life is a relational, holistic, community-based ministry aimed at serving
under-resourced neighborhoods through developing young people from that community to emerging
leaders who lead where they live. Young people from these communities are less likely to meet Jesus through
traditional outreach models. Most face significant challenges including violence, homelessness, fatherlessness, abuse, neglect, addiction, amongmany others.

Our aim is to be a steady voice and presence in the lives of these young people
and their communities, intentionally posturing ourselvesas caring and attentive mentors.
As leaders, we help young people realize their worth as we actively listen to, learn from,
and walk alongside them as they uncover God’s story of hope in their lives. We dream that they
​will know Jesus and make a positive impact in the communities they reside in.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Preteens
Ethnic and racial groups
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged people

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
