Founded in 1948, Youth for Christ Miami has proven programs that encourage teens to grow in all areas of their lives: academically, mentally, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. With a focus on serving our most vulnerable communities, we do character-building activities that instill integrity, honesty, respect and compassion in order to help our youth become productive citizens now and for the long-term. Our clubs build healthy relationships and help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their communities.
By partnering with local churches, schools, and community organizations, Youth for Christ serves over 3,000 at-risk teens throughout Miami-Dade and Broward. Whether it be in the juvenile detention centers, public schools or our own after-school centers, we are building bright and beautiful futures for our youth.

Youth for Christ has helped me learn how to manage situations more easily, and it makes me happy to eat lunch with people I know care about me, since the other four days of the week I sit by myself.
