Youth for Christ has offered programs to Rochester youth since 1945. Today we focus on youth in Rochester's urban areas where high poverty, violence and despair, are most prevalent.
Located in the Southwest Quadrant, 1 Favor Street Youth Center provides easy access for youth and their families to activities and services provided through vibrant Parent Life/Successful Pathways and All-Star Sports programs.
In Parent Life, our goal is to empower pregnant and parenting moms to become responsible, move toward a sustainable plan for independence and discover the plans that God has for them.
All-Star Sports (basketball and martial arts) encourage healthy relationships and attitudes, personal growth and responsibility as youth learn godly life principles, in addition to sports skills.
In all programs, youth meet with nurturing adult mentors, coaches, staff and community volunteers, who teach life skills and principles, promote character development, and encourage their desire for a living faith in Jesus Christ.
Our highest goal is to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.
With an unwavering commitment to youth, YFC strives to both demonstrate and communicate the message of hope, grace and love in a variety of different cultural settings, and always pursuing teens in personal relationships.
