Journey is an after-school and summer program for high school youth to learn and experience the love of Jesus, succeed in school, develop professional job skills, and grow as servant leaders.
Christian volunteers across denominational lines lead each aspect of the program as they build healthy, authentic relationships with the youth that point to Christ. High school students spend time in large group Bible lessons, worship, and small group discussions that focus on discipleship, developing a personal relationship with Christ, and creating meaningful applications to their everyday lives. Through tutoring and life skills classes, Journey helps students attain their high school diploma and focus their God-given talents toward higher education and/or employment.
High school youth also have the opportunity to enroll in classes such as Future U where they begin to build a solid foundation for a bright future of purposeful employment and financial stability. Overall, Journey prepares students for the future while pointing them to Christ and encouraging servant leadership in their family, school, and community.

“I love volunteering for Freedom because it gives me a chance to serve right here where I live. I get to see the kids we work with at the grocery store and the local park. Jesus tells us to make disciples, and with Freedom for Youth I can share the Gospel in my ‘Jerusalem.’” – Emily, Volunteer
