“Many of our youth are looking for a place to be their authentic self. High school and middle school are rough. Having a safe space to share, ask the opinions of peers and adult leaders is life-changing for many students. It is also a great place to explore faith in God. So many of our students are dis-connected from any church and don't know where to find answers to their questions,” said Green.
