Who We Are
Youth for Christ Westlock is a registered non-profit, non-denominational, Christian Youth organization and Chartered member of Youth for Christ Canada. In 1993, YFC Westlock was incorporated and became a Chapter of YFC Canada. The goal has always been to provide relevant ministry to the local youth population.
YFC Westlock currently serves youth in a local high school with Campus Life. We operate the Someplace Else Youth Centre where we have a variety of activities throughout the week. We have in the past had summer programs and we do speciality dinners throughout the year on most holidays to celebrate with our youth. A number of volunteers help deliver programs and reach out to many youth to see them attain their full life potential as God designed it.
Our Mission Statement
YFC Westlock reaches young people in the area, working together with the local churches and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their Godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.
Our Core Values
- We commit to present to the youth the HOPE of Christ.
- We commit to equipping and empowering Youth, Volunteers, and YFC Staff to make transformational differences in their relationships, communities and world.
- We commit to servant leadership in the development of and nurturing of holistic strategies and partnerships to serve the needs of youth in the area.

YFC Westlock Ministry Model
As an organization, we strive to not be known for our programs, but our relational approach to all individuals we come in contact with. However, we also understand that programs often are a key introduction to the youth so we can develop relationships that go beyond attendance at an event.
