Located in the center of the city of Portage la Prairie, our original building serves as the main office, drop-in center for youth, and skate park. In addition, we have a secondary space located in a housing unit which has been used for variety of cooking programs, afterschool children’s activities, community partnerships and much of our summer programming. Our programs change along with community needs from year to year, though often consist of small groups, drop-in’s, sports programming, school partnerships, and special events. Our heart is to partner with the community and be a safe space for the youth and young people to gather.
Youth for Christ Youth Unlimited is a global organization with youth centers located all around the world. We are just one of 37 chapters in Canada today that span from coast to coast. YFU/YU is faith based, non-denominational organization that is driven by our desire to see the youth of this generation transformed, empowered, and inspired. YFC/YU runs a variety of programs that vary based on the communities they are in. Each site is built of a team of dedicated staff and volunteers who work alongside the community and often partner with local schools and other organizations.
YFC/YU is fully funded through donations, partnerships and occasionally grants. This means that each team member must fundraise their wage by partnering with generous donors who desire to to support their work with YFC/YU.
