Since 1991, youth from shelters, various inner city neighborhoods, and housing projects around Houston have been offered a better chance to discover their full potential through the programs offered by Hope for Youth. These programs are designed to open the doors of hope to youth in need of the compassionate leadership so necessary to foster spiritual, academic, and social growth. To facilitate that growth, we offer programming in four broad categories; Large Group Outreach, Small Group Discipleship, Camps and Retreats, and Summer Programs.
Friday Night Live is our primary outreach program. Youth are encouraged to invite their friends to join them. Typically held two Fridays a month, the night starts off with dinner, games, and fellowship before hearing a short devotion/message followed by small-group discussion about the topic of the week. It is our goal to create a loving and inviting atmosphere where students can come to lay all of their worries aside, while interacting with volunteers who expose them to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our hope is that they will see something they want to get plugged into and keep coming back.
