We see the hope and potential in every young person we meet and reach through community specific programs.
YFC Winnipeg is a chartered member of Youth for Christ Canada, an international, non-denominational Christian ministry who, for over 75 years, has passionately engaged young people to live their full life potential as designed by God.
Motivated by our faith, we believe that transformed youth have the opportunity to transform communities, our country, and the world. We engage and equip youth to know and follow Jesus.
There are more than 60,000 young people in Winnipeg and surrounding area. Whatever their background, beliefs, or situation, we believe each young person has hope, potential, and purpose. We believe in them, so they can believe in themselves!
We believe every young person needs:
• Ongoing relationships with caring adults
• Safe places with structured activities during non-school hours
• To be equipped with marketable skills
• Opportunities to give back through community service
• Encouragement to nurture a healthy, vibrant, grace-based spirituality
As a Christian non-profit charity, YFC Winnipeg is not a church, but we do work with churches, government, schools and other youth serving agencies to meet the needs of teenagers.
All young people are welcome to participate in the programs of YFC.
We seek to treat all participants fairly and equally regardless of characteristics such as gender, sexual orientation, family status, race, cast, culture, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religious belief, age, educational background or political affiliation.
Our passion is to provide a warm, welcoming and grace-filled environment where young people can grow up healthy, caring and responsible.
Our passion is to combine healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices and establish a solid foundation for life.
