Youth for Christ is an international, non-denominational Christian ministry.
Youth for Christ, Canada is structured as an association of Chapter ministries, each receiving their "charter" from the National Office of YFC, Canada in Langley, BC. Each of the Chapters has an independent Board of Directors and has achieved "charitable status" through the offices of CCRA in Ottawa. Each Chapter is led by an Executive Director who is recruited and employed by the Chapter Board.
Chapter ministries are commissioned to reach the youth of their area through nationally approved strategies which conform to the international standards and philosophy of Youth for Christ International based in Englewood, Colorado.
Chapter ministries are encouraged to broaden their ministry influence through the development of Satellite ministries in communities within their sphere of influence. There are approximately 300 Ministry Centres in Canada under Chapter leadership.
The National Office of YFC,Canada exists to serve and lead YFC Canada, strengthening health, unity and effectiveness.
The National Director is responsible to a National Board of Directors and gives leadership to the movement through the Executive Directors at the Chapter level.
YFC is a Registered Charity with the Government of Canada / Canada Revenue Agency
