Island Ford Giving Plan: Youth For Christ
We all need something bigger than ourselves to belong to, and someone wiser who believes in us and offers support. Being a part of a community is important for each of us to reach our potential.
Victoria Youth for Christ Mobile Outreach is committed to providing support and community to First Nations Youth through partnerships with local churches. They lead weekly programs that aim to serve First Nations youth in practical ways that communicate the love of Jesus Christ in culturally sensitive and relevant ways. They work to help youth reach their full potential emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually. They provide a safe environment for First Nations youth aged 8 through 18, and strive to empower them and make sure that they know they are loved. They participate in crafts, sports, snacks, games, First Nations language, and if the parents consent, "God Talks".
The mobile outreach program takes place only in communities they are invited to, including in Esquimalt, Quw'utsun (Cowichan), Scianew (Beecher Bay), Tseycum, Tsawout.
