Youth Extreme is geared for students in grades 9 through 12. This program provides high school students a safe environment (both physically and emotionally) where there are opportunities to have fun, strengthen positive friendships, and learn healthy conflict resolution when conflict inevitably presents itself. Adult leaders seek not only to be positive role models, but also to develop healthy, trusting relationships with young people and speak “Good News” into every area of their lives. Through these open discussions, these students are encouraged to grow in their faith and gifting. Youth are also encouraged to take responsibility and ownership of the group through leadership and service opportunities.
