Our vision is to see the lives of every high-risk youth in King and Snohomish Counties transformed through the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

In 1944 Youth for Christ responded to the growing need to provide Christian leadership by coordinating gospel centered outreach events. In a post World War II America, the ministry expanded quickly and Billy Graham became YFC’s first full time Staff member.

Today Youth for Christ reaches high-risk youth through our various ministries:

  • City Life
  • Juvenile Justice
  • Parent Life

Seattle Area Youth for Christ ministries reach youth in urban, suburban and rural areas and functions as a chapter of Youth for Christ USA which operates worldwide and employs over 40,000 individuals. We devote ourselves to spreading the hope of Jesus in all cultural settings.
