Outdoor Youth Extravaganza
Thanks to the Round Lake Area News for covering the event highlighted in this video, which we held on Thursday, May 11th, 2017. In keeping with our vision which includes being a "bridge" to connect young people to other organizations in the community, we invited some local groups to come and share with us about their work.
Our main event was a K9 presentation by TOPS dog trainer Tim Branon, Deputy Somerville of the Lake County Sheriff's Department & his K-9 Diesel. Our guest groups were Informed Choices (pregnancy & parenting services), Healthy Choices (sexual risk avoidance education),
Round Lake Scouts (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts & Crew) and Frontline (gang prevention & intervention).
We believe in reaching out to youth & young adults with the love of Christ;
the priority of relationship-based mission; the effectiveness of working together with families, leaders, schools, organizations, churches, & businesses in our community; and in the goal of raising up young people to become leaders in their families & communities, who are servant-hearted & responsible in life & cross-cultural & globally-minded in their world view.
Thank you to the B.E.S.T. Coalition of Round Lake!
