The Switch Yard programs & activities are in full swing for this fall & winter, and we’re having a great time!
Here’s what’s going on:
Education Program – students come to do their school work at the Switch Yard. We provide light snacks, one-on-one tutoring, computers for school work, and support for their day-to-day needs (Tuesdays & Thursdays).
Boys/Girls Club – after school program for grades 6-8. We play games, exercise proper manners, social skills and eat a “family meal” together (every Tuesday).
Drop-in nights – a social gathering for any youth aged 12-18 (grades 8-12+). We play games inside and outside, prepare meals and eat together, hang out, chat, have fun! Awesome volunteers inspire positive conversation, play games, and build friendships with the youth (Tuesdays & Thursday nights).
RIZE Sr. Youth Group:
Youth Alpha video series runs alternating Wednesday nights, and we talk about timeless questions about life, faith and God. Real questions welcome, and we’ll find real, Jesus-inspired answers. It’s a great starting point of understanding faith and God.
iCare – Alternating Wednesdays, we participate in community service jobs around the town of Bancroft for people in need. This has included stacking wood, raking leaves, making meals, making baby blankets, baking for bake sales, and more! We like to think we’re “The hands and feet of Jesus” in our community by spreading God’s love through our actions.
Friday night fun – Youth are invited to come hang out and participate in our weekly Friday nights & have fun! We have games nights, go to events, plan events, have retreats, go camping… and way more.
If you have any questions about our programs or would like to participate, call or email us! We’d love to hear from you.
