Mission Statement


Help high-risk, low-income minority youth develop spiritually, emotionally, academically, and economically.

Description


BUYF begins working with truant youth in middle school and partners with them throughout their educational career. BUYF staff help them identify why they are not consistantly engaged in school, providing them the support and assistance they need in order to overcome those barriers keeping them out of school. BUYF does this through case managent, vision casting, positive peer groups, academic skill building, and life coaching. In addition, BUYF holds CLUB, Christian Living Under the Bible, once a week. This is a time for all of our kids from the different schools we work in to come and have fun and fellowship together with a Christian message that is relevant to their lives.
