Gratiot Core

Young people helping young people uncover God’s story of hope

YFC Core® mobilizes students to reach other young people in their schools, communities, and in other spheres of life. We believe every 11-19 year old should have the opportunity to uncover God’s story of hope in their lives. This is realized through meaningful discipling relationships grounded in biblical community.

Providing an ideal platform for adults to serve as humble and authentic mentors, YFC Core® empowers young people to walk alongside friends, providing a steady voice and presence. YFC Core® is about unleashing teams of students who naturally invite friends to discover Jesus. These teams of students meet weekly with adult coaches to share, pray and discover how God is challenging them to invite their friends to walk with them towards Christ.
