CHILDREN AGAINST NEGATIVITY
A look inside...
To actively engage in C.A.N.'S (Children Against Negativity) mission to cultivate the minds of our most vulnerable population, we provide youth and young adults ages 5 to 21, with mentors from various roles within the Louisville community and beyond; tools to excel in life and academics, and information and activities to foster skills that will last for a lifetime.
These skills build in each student, strong and healthy relationships; promote character development; provide a sense of moral and civic responsibility.
YOUTH & YOUNG ADULT BIBLE CLASSES
Youth bible classes have been tailor made for youth who range from ages 5 to 21. Each week mentors and staff provide biblical education that is applicable to the lives of our young people. The sessions are uniquely designed so that there is an exchange of thoughts, ideas, and expression. Our young people excitedly look forward to youth bible classes.
ANNUAL C.A.N. CAMP
Once a year, students attend our Youth Empowerment Retreat, known as CAN Camp. CAN camp combines athletic competition, team building exercises, fellowship, and biblical teaching in a power-packed four days and three nights of fun and comradery. There are also seminars and workshops that have been designed to reinforce the life skills and character development sessions that have been taught throughout the year. CTCLC's "children" of all ages look forward to joining our youth at CAN camp!
LIFE SKILLS AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
CAN provides many opportunities for life skills and character development throughout the year. One of our annual events is the Youth Leadership Retreat, where students engage in biblically based seminars; as well as workshops designed to enhance character development, build peer to peer support teams, and participate in activities that provide our youth with tools for financial empowerment. Some of our young people are already business owners!
CAN staff schedules various events throughout the year to expose our youth to opportunities for community service and civic engagement. Students have visited various college campuses to foster enthusiasm for academic attainment. Many CAN students have participated in global missions, traveling as far away as East Africa.
