Secular Programs

Here is a list of programs that NCYFC provides in a secular setting

Bike Building

We provide young people and adults the opportunity to give back to the community by refurbishing bicycles and donating to those in need in Weld County.  To get more information on how to get involved by volunteering or donating a gently used bike, email Liz Young or visit the site

Bake of Love

Bake of Love invites kids to show the community how much they are appreciated. Kids from all over the city come together to bake treats for people that work in retail. These goodies are delivered the day after Black Friday. Black Friday is the most stressful day of the year for retail workers and the kids want those workers to know that we care about them. This program is mostly supported by the youth and volunteers that participate in YFC Core, The Refuge, and Higher Grounds.

Snowboard Shuttle

The Refuge (formally, The Farm), a program of Northern Colorado Youth for Christ, takes kids snowboarding on Saturdays at Keystone throughout the snowboard season. We offer this service for $10 for youth and adults. Kids are "shuttled" to the mountain with our van and then brought back home at the end of the day.  The shuttle does not cover the cost of your lift ticket, which must be purchased separately.  To get more information contact [email protected]

Skate Shuttle

Throughout the summer, The Refuge takes kids to skate parks all over Colorado. We do this as a way to build relationships and give kids that may not have the opportunity to skate with other locals. To get more information contact [email protected]

Waste Not

Waste Not is a program of the University of Northern Colorado. We collect food from UNC dining halls and deliever it to the local Salvation Army and homeless shelter. During 2011, the Waste Not Food Program provided approximately 55,000 meals for children and families in Greeley.  The program is in its second year and is a partnership between the Salvation Army, University of Northern Colorado, District 6 Nutritional Services, and Kings Soopers.

Teen Parents

NCYFC provides life skills training for pregnant and parenting teens in our community. Teen Parents teaches valuable lessons ranging from renting an apartment to fixing things around the house. We work with government agencies and business professionals in the community to not just provide services, but to teach young parents how to care for themselves and their children.
