Youth for Freedom

Youth For Freedom is a three day youth conference which empowers youth 12-19 to live exciting and successful lives by experiencing a deep and personal freedom. Filled with empowering and life changing experiences; youth learn from excellent speakers, discuss life changing books, participate in simulations where they can be great and authentic, dance, improvise, swim, laugh, cry as they unite their heads and their hearts, receive personal mentoring, and make new friends. Youth experience what freedom feels like as they choose to live on purpose. Everyone involved in Youth For Freedom leaves knowing themselves at a deeper level, with higher levels of trust, love, and value for themselves and for others.

Masterpiece of Work

A full day experience with Shelby Smith and Kami Mitchell. Raising energy, playing, breaking down walls of resistance, and facing ourselves in the mirror.


What is L-evate?? I can tell you some of the things that are happening in the womens lives because of coming to this retreat. One mom told us that she has been looking for her direction in life. Being at the L-evate retreat inspired her. She said that she has never felt so welcomed and so accepted by a group of women as she did here. She is now ready to reconstruct her business and work with larger groups of people rather than just one on one. She was scared to death of groups until she experienced L-evate. Live, Laugh, Love, & Learn!


This is a four week course where each week you will get together with a group of people to be mentored for 90 minutes by Kami Mitchell and Shelby Smith.

Freedom Extreme

Freedom Extreme is a youth seminar that we bring to you! It is a two day program we will bring our team to your hometown!


Want More Freedom is an opportunity to learn about how freedom affects yourself, the space around you, and your influence in the world. Through interactive experiences you will be able to put into action the freedom principles that we will share with you. Invite and bring your friends!

I look forward to this camp all year. Thank you so much for creating a place where I can feel safe and loved and where I learn and grow and improve.


YFF has changed my life. I am so thankful to be a counselor and help make a difference, just as powerful as the difference it made in my life!


I am forever changed every year I go! There are different life-changing experiences every single year, no matter the level, you will never be the same again.


Words cannot express my gratitude for everything YFF has done for me and others! So here is a million hugs!
