HELP PREPARE STUDENTS FOR GRADUATION!
The Youth Transition Network is a coalition of youth, college and military ministries working together to motivate, prepare and connect students to their next spiritual home.
YTN offers new preparation and motivation tools annually that churches and parents can use to encourage their students to connect for life. Please view the video of college students talking about their transition. It is powerful and motivates students to seek out ministries and Christian roommates before they leave home.
does leaving home need to equal leaving one's faith as well?
College often becomes a spiritual graveyard for many Christian students… a place where they wander from their faith. The Assemblies of God denomination has concluded that they are losing 66% of their youth leading up to, and following, high school graduation. Culture shock, loneliness, a party environment and peer pressure result in students leaving their family foundations when on their own.
For many of our youth, this is the first time all of their God-given needs go unmet: to be loved, accepted and fit into a group. When our students leave home alone with no established connection to Christian roommates, godly friends or college ministries they lose the accountability and the balance provided by these vital relationships. >>>
