Daniel Patterson

Session Director

     Daniel Patterson is a regular dude. He likes reading comic books as much as he loves playing sports. His passion is in criminology and he is pursuing a career in the FBI in their anti-terrorism unit. Daniel likes to dream big, and encourages others to do the same. This 2018 year will be his third year being involved in Youth for Freedom, and his first time as a session director. He brings an attitude of possibility, growth and hard work to the program. Daniel’s mentality can be            summed up in two words “No Shortcuts”, and to understand that better, you will just have to ask him to explain it when you meet him. 

Attending YFF was a decision that forever changed me for the better. I grew a special amount of love for not only my group but my group leaders. They opened my eyes to the importance of life in general. YFF will always remain close to my heart.
