$40 for 40th Fundraising Campaign As we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, we look back with sincere appreciation and gratitude for all of the churches, parents, volunteers, speakers, leaders, ambassadors, alumni and friends who have helped shape Youth Advance into the organization it is today. THANK YOU! 

Every organization needs funds to survive and thrive. In order to keep costs down for our Ambassadors, their families, and the local churches that support them, we are looking to expand our fundraising efforts this year and we need your help. To celebrate our 40th Anniversary this year, we are launching a $40 for 40th Campaign and we invite you to join us! Our goal is to raise $4,000 from 100 donors like yourself. Reaching this goal will help us cover our normal operating expenses which continue to rise each year and allow us to continue to offer scholarships for Ambassadors from first time churches. 

In 2017, Youth Advance began providing “scholarships,” essentially waiving the registration fee, for up to 2 Ambassadors from churches that have not participated in Youth Advance before. These scholarships are vital for attracting new churches to our program by providing an opportunity for their youth to attend with little to no cost. In the past 5 years, we have provided 21 scholarships to Ambassadors representing 13 local churches of Christ. Many of these churches continue to send youth each year. 

The world has changed dramatically over the past 40 years and continues to change at a rapid pace. Our children and youth face challenges that were unthinkable a generation ago. Now more than ever, we need to encourage the local church by strengthening and empowering our young men and women by providing an environment that gives them the opportunity to learn, grow and become the Christian leaders God has called them to be. We believe Youth Advance provides one of these opportunities, but we cannot do it alone.
