This Year's Project:
Youth For Christ exists to reach every 11-19 year old in Siouxland with the love of Christ, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners, to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus and lead them into involvement with the local church. To develop young people who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the Word of God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement. Every day at community teen centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions and coffee hangouts, Youth For Christ staff and volunteer ministry leaders meet with young people who are troubled, hungry and thirsty for a hope and a future. We desire to give life to their story.
Youth For Christ Before and After School Programs
Part of the weekly programming and services Siouxland Youth For Christ offers to over 200 11-19 year olds include before and after school programs in the 3 comunities of Hawarden, Le Mars and the Sioux City Near Northside along with 5 middle schools and high schools in these communties.

The programming includes: snacks, creative games, lessons about relevant daily issues students face, small group trips, outdoor camp experieinces and so much more.
- Our community based after school programs are an effective ministry model to transform the lives of urban youth, their families and the communities that they live in. These programs also combine healthy relationships between students and caring adult leaders with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their peers, families and communities in a safe environment. The programming includes: weekly family style dinners, snacks, creative group games, lessons about relevant daily issues students face, group trips, outdoor camp experieinces, sports and recreation and so much more.
We have a current need for $8,000 to resource the food and supplies portions of these programs. For our campus based programs we specifically need to fund our snacks, games and small group trip costs. And for our community based programs we specifically need to fund our snacks, weekly dinners, sport activities and small group trip costs. Thank you for considering an investment into the life a young person, to give them and hope and a future.
