Value Up

True change comes when a cultural shift takes place. From the lunch lady to the superintendent, and from the head cheerleader to the new student, everyone has to see the value of valuing everyone.

Young Life

We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.

Project Reasons

Project Reasons is a 501(c)(3) small group effort that is dedicated to saving the lives of students, and adults, from suicide. We focus primarily on teaching students how to cope with suicidal feelings as well as how to help their friends. We also encourage dialogue between adults and students and encourage people to courageously talk about mental health. Project Reasons believes in order to successfully make a change, it is necessary to unify adults and students in the prevention effort. In order to accomplish this, we use our own personal stories. Project Reasons is run by the Student Board, which spans across multiple districts. Our students set out to speak to both students and adults on the difficult and often painful topic of suicide.
