Since our beginning in 1945, our methods may have changed but our mission has remained constant: To see the transforming power of Jesus Christ at work in the lives of today’s youth. Today we are ministering not only to Kindergarten through High School students but to 3 and 4 year olds as well as college age students. Our passion to help young people thrive spiritually, physically and socially is supported by churches, businesses, families and individuals. Together, we are making a difference both now and for eternity!
