Your Generous Donations and Paid Adventure Packages Enable us to Impact Lynchburg's Urban Youth Through
Weekly Small Group Mentoring
We have 3 locations and about 100 youth that meet weekly. In these gatherings, we focus on biblical values, building relationships, team work, sportsmanship, leadership, and life skills.
Adventures are an awesome way to build relationships, face fears, overcome challenges and be empowered. These trips enable us to forge bonds and build trust at a level we couldn't reach with our weekly bible studies alone. Plus, we teach some sweet outdoor skills and to care for nature.
This is our mentorship program. We pair up two leaders and two of our youth for two-on-two mentorships. It's a lot of baking and visits to the park, but is also another touch point to support and love our youth throughout the week.
