YFC is committed to pursuing teenagers in their world, sharing with them the hope and love that God has for them.
YFC will consistently strive to develop safe, bridge-building relationships with middle school and high school students through the different programs that we have to offer.

The benefites of one-on-one relationships between caring adults and teens released from juvenile halls or assigned to community or continuation schools is impacting the future of these youth. What has distinguished "New Way for Teens" is the expertise of our mentoring team that have combined experience of over 100 years of working with this culture of the youth population.
