Youth For Freedom
Freedom in the MIND, HEART, BODY, & SOUL
A way of being that affects every area of your life.
At Youth for Freedom, youth learn from professional and well qualified speakers, discuss life changing books, participate in simulations where they can be real and authentic, dance, improvise, swim, laugh, and cry as they connect their heads and their hearts, receive personal mentoring, and make new friends. Youth are presented with opportunities to choose into:
- A clearer grasp on emotional intelligence
- A stronger sense of belonging
- Understanding and acceptance of their own gifts and uniqueness
- Direction, meaning, and purpose in life
- Deeper connections with self and with others
- Increased self-love, self-trust, and self-value
- Lots of laughter and fun

Answers & Insight
Our world class Mentors, Coaches, Directors, and Counselors guide powerful experiential learning.
This camp breaks down the emotional walls that each of us have which keeps us from fully experiencing the richness of life. We are taught how to follow and achieve our inner mission to eventually become truly great human beings. This camp has changed and liberated me and brought me closer to the person I one day hope to be.
This camp has risen above all others. It changed my life, my outlook on life, other people, and myself. I can never thank all of you enough for putting this all together!!!! I LOVE YFF and can’t wait to go again next year!
This is my fifth year at YFF and there is a reason for that. This program is amazing and I can’t thank you enough.
The greatest three days of my entire year! -Alisa L.
Who should attend Youth for Freedom?
Any youth ages 12-19 who wants to upgrade the way they feel about themselves!
Which session should I go to?
Session 1: 12-13 year olds only. Must be 12 years old by Aug 31, 2017
Session 2: 14-16 year olds. Must be 14 years old by Aug 31, 2017
Session 3: 15-17 year olds
Session 4: 16-19 year olds
Can I skip a session or attend one multiple times?
Every year and experience at YFF is different from the last and can be attended multiple times. Each level is designed to build on the one ahead of it, so we strongly recommend attending them in order. Only 17 or 18 year olds attending for the first time would want to consider skipping ahead to level 3, and they are not required to do so.
Can I participate without being an attendee?
If you are 18 years of age or older you can volunteer to be on our YFF team. Every single person involved with us is shifted, not just the youth. Check out our Opportunities/Volunteer page here!
What do I need to bring?
Check out our PACKING LIST.
What do I need to prepare before Youth for Freedom?
Each session has a book, an article, and a TED talk video to read before attending. Check them out on the session pages.
