Youth Venture is a community based, Christ centered, guidance program open to all youth between the 6th and 12th grade. The teen center and Skate Park offer adult supervision and friendship, after school and on weekends. Youth Venture, a ministry of Foothills Christian Church, was formed to assist teens in learning the basic principles for successful living found in the Bible, and to help establish significant relationships for those teens with mature adults. Youth Venture serves to support the efforts of parents to instill in their children sound character and sound life goals. Youth Venture seeks to develop a peer group for teens that is drug-free, moral and goal-oriented. At the heart of our program is mentoring. We utilize camps, conferences, special trips, recreation and other special events to build relationships with adult mentors and begin the mentoring process. Many of these teens have overcome difficult pasts and have gone on to become leaders in their community.
The guidance and direction provided by the Youth Venture Program contributes to the health, welfare, and mental well-being of the East County children involved in the program. It reduces their inclination to participate in self-destructive behavior and equips them with life skills for successful living. We teach them to make right choices.
Youth Venture’s effectiveness is reliant upon the generous donations of our supporters.
