Who we are

Youth Unlimited / Kawartha YFC is a registered non-profit, non-denominational, international, Christian youth organization and Chartered member of Youth for Christ Canada. In 2008 we celebrated our 30th year of service in the Kawarthas.

Youth Unlimited Kawartha currently serves youth and families in the Haliburton Highlands Lakefield, Lindsay, Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, and Peterborough and the with our head office located in downtown Peterborough, 1.5 hours north east of Toronto. Youth Unlimited Kawartha has a large number of staff and volunteers reaching out to hundreds of youth to see them attain their full life potential as God designed it.

Core Values

We have discovered a life filled with hope, joy and purpose found in a community of people who have Jesus Christ at the centre of who we are and how we live. We have a wealth of life that can never be depleted and that money cannot buy it.

We commit to share our treasure with youth (and anyone else who longs for life) so that they too can have a living relationship with Jesus and grow in life-giving community.

We commit to learning and growing together. From a position of being life-long learners who are dependent on God and who are interdependent with one another, we will equip and empower Youth, Volunteers and YFC Staff to make transformational differences in their relationships, communities and world.

We commit to operate with integrity, equally valuing relationships and tangible results.

We commit to lead by serving to foster a culture of serving. We refuse to insulate ourselves from the needs of youth. As we spend ourselves, we intentionally invite every adult in our towns and villages to join us in taking responsibility for the care and nurture of our youth.

Our Vision

It is our vision, through strategic partnerships and alliances as well as through our own front-line endeavours, to see the lives of youth in the Greater Kawartha area attain their full life potential as God designed it.

Our Mission

As members of the Christian community we will communicate to youth the life-changing message of Jesus Christ, showing concern for the whole person, and challenging them to become his disciples.
