About Youth Explosion
Youth Explosion began in 2001 in an effort to provide a weekend of fun, music and spiritual enrichment in a wholesome and supportive environment for youth Grade 7 and up. Our mandate is to encourage youth in the County of Vulcan and Southern Alberta, to make responsible decisions regarding personal relationships, drugs/alcohol use and peer pressure. We see a need to train our youth in making life-changing, healthy choices and to assist them to become strong leaders in their schools and communities. Our future depends on the strength and integrity of these young people. It does take a community to raise a child, a concept that we hope to re-establish in today’s society.
We are planning for ~200 youth to attend “Youth Explosion 2015” October 23-25, at the Vulcan CRC at absolutely no cost to them! Last year youth came from Vulcan County and many other communities including Calgary, Lethbridge, Brooks, High River, Fernie, Sparwood, Coaldale and Bowden, to mention a few. Thus, we gratefully accept donations from many area churches, businesses and individuals.
Please partner with us in prayer as we strive to share Jesus and a message of hope with youth from around the community.
