YFC Australia is part of Youth for Christ International, an inter-denominational, non-profit organisation with a staff of 65,000 operating in 125 countries. We are completely committed to offering the best possible alternatives to Australian young people so that they can reach their potential physically, relationally, emotionally and spiritually.
YFC has been active in the Central Coast region for over 50 years. Annually we provide support to over 300 young people in the Central Coast region. YFC Central Coast currently employs 4 staff and a volunteers network from the local Christian community.
Young people spend most of their formative years at school and it is a unique environment to have contact with and reach large numbers of young people. Our approach to school ministry is to have a regular presence in a school developing relationships with staff and students that open doors for ongoing outreach.
Many of the young people we reach out to have experienced considerable hurt and pain in their short young lives. Our commitment to ongoing relationships with the young people gives us the unique opportunity to walk with them offering healing through trained counselling support.
