Pierce County is filled with thousands of hurting kids and families who are in the margins, overlooked, and in need of hope for a brighter future. Youth For Christ’s mission is to bring hope into the lives of these young people and serve them in tangible ways.
As one of the area’s longest youth advocacy organizations, we are privileged to be a part of their work to serve the youth of Pierce County.
Helping young people across Pierce County.
As a Christian youth non-profit, YFC works across denominational borders to reach young people from all backgrounds. Why? Because there is so much at stake for the youth across our community.
- Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among teenagers.
- Over 3,100 Pierce County teens were arrested in the past year.
- 28% of 6th graders report being bullied in the past year.
- 50% of teen moms never graduate from high school.
But instilling hope is key to change. Through four core programs, Youth For Christ meets young people right where they’re at, in neighborhoods, schools, detention centers, etc., providing access to mentorship, empowerment, meeting basic needs, and healthy relationships with caring adult Christian leaders.
Young adults who were at-risk youth but had a mentor are:
- 55% more likely to enroll in college
- 78% more likely to volunteer regularly
- 130% more likely to hold leadership positions
If you know someone who would benefit from the work of Youth For Christ or maybe your business and organization would like to be a part of giving back to the youth community throughout Pierce County, we highly recommend reaching out to Youth For Christ to learn more about who they are and what they do.
