The Vision of Youth Alive® is to come alongside leaders and connect them to eachother. Youth Alive®: SNE will work to connect the School Leadership with the Leadership of the Local Church
Youth Alive® works directly with the local church leadership in dreaming of ways that they can selflessly serve the schools in their area. As the Church, we should desire to serve the schools in any way possible to have a positive influence in our communities. We have seen churches hold backpack drives, serve at concession stands, clean up after sporting events and plays, and even purchase new equipment for the school facilities! All of this is done without the need for recognition, but to simply serve the schools without asking for anything in return.
As a new organization to Southern New England, I work diligently at contacting school districts and introducing Youth Alive. We want to serve the school and help them make the best environment possible for students. Principals and Superintendents know what their schools need best, and we will work with the schools to develop initiatives that the local church can support. Schools can see ways that the local church can be their biggest resource, without breaking any church/state laws. In this way, I serve as a liaison between the school districts and local churches.
Youth Alive® strives to create a healthy relationship between churches and schools to have a greater influence on our students.
