In our over 24 years of ministering to the Youth of the Brainerd Lakes area, we've never truly had a visible space of our own for our students to come and gather. With the YFC Junction Outreach center, that's changing in a big way! Only a few blocks away from the high school, it's a huge leap in the direction we've been headed all along: reaching out to Students with the love of Jesus and the message of Hope, Inspiration, Purpose and Peace.
What is it?
The YFC Junction is an outreach center that is intentional in everything it does to engage the youth that walk in it's doors, welcoming and warm in atmosphere from the furnishings to the volunteers. With spaces to study, eat snacks, play games or hang out with friends, The Junction has a little bit of something for everyone as the volunteers and staff actively interact with them and give them a sense of belonging, engaging with their stories.
*TO START, our hours for the Junction will be open to Jr and Sr High school students will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 6 PM. These hours are Temporary! As we work to get more volunteers to help us provide the engaging, relational supervision that the Junction requires, we will eventually expand the days to be every weekday from 2 to 6. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer to help make that happen, awesome! Click Here to get that started!
Thanks to the R4 Foundation and Fortress Built for all the hard in renovating this building.
Also, a very special thanks to all the volunteers who gave a helping hand. In fact, to date there has been 2,057 hours of volunteer time given to making the YFC Junction a reality!
You can't ask for a much better crew of volunteers and leaders than this one!
