The Place for Youth

   Like never before, the road to adulthood is littered with destructive pitfalls. Pits like drugs, alcohol, pornography, sexual experimentation, depression, violence, self-harm, bullying, eating disorders, and more. These pits are hurting our youth and leaving scars that can last a lifetime. On the journey from dependent youth to independent adult, The YAK serves as a crossroads, encouraging teens to choose a healthy pathway to maturity.
