Helping youth thrive

Many children around the world have grown up amidst adversity—political instability, major natural disasters, human trafficking, forced displacement, and more. And too many young adults don’t have access to education, training, and employment. Young people are incredibly resilient; they just need a supportive and encouraging community around them!

That’s why Bethany supports youth—helping them build the emotional, entrepreneurial, and financial skills needed to thrive, not just survive.

Where do we offer youth resilience services?

In Ghana, we host week-long summer camps to help youth ages 14-23 (from families enrolled in our family preservation program) build resilience as they prepare to transition to independent living. Camp experience and individual mentorship provide youth with tools to learn to manage peer pressure, make career choices, and increase socialization skills.
