COVID-19 Response

Dear Friends of YFC,
We cannot thank you enough for the faithful support you have shown us throughout the pandemic. At YFCNIN we care about teens and understand their need for healthy connection. In this unique season, we are committed to building authentic relationships as we help teens succeed in every area of life. As we engage with in-person ministry with teens, we are proceeding with discernment and at all times we will follow Federal, State, and Local guidelines. To safely engage with in-person connections, we are focused on smaller shared experiences where we can maintain appropriate safety precautions. 
Steps we are taking to maintain a safe approach for these shared experiences:
  • Anyone participating in a YFCNIN activity must complete this annual liability release form which will remain valid through June 30, 2021.
  • This personal screening must be completed before all YFCNIN activities by all participants. 
  • Group size will be dependent upon each county according to the Advisory Level color coded map that's updated every Wednesday afternoon on the website:
    • Counties in red:        Groups of 10 or less
    • Counties in orange:  Groups of 25 or less
    • Counties in yellow:   Groups of 50 or less
    • Counties in blue:      Groups of 125 or less
  • Follow all social distancing guidelines set by the CDC
    • Stay more than 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) away from other people
    • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings
    • If there’s a time you cannot social distance, masks must be worn (coming & going to an activity)
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available
  • No contact sports  
  • Recommended that there's no communal eating or potlucks (no shared snacks; must be individually bagged)
  • Transportation: Max 4 people per vehicle. Masks required while in the vehicle.
We covet your prayers as we engage with teens in-person, and we are expectant of all that God will do in the days ahead.
