The adolescent journey is one of physical, mental, and emotional transformation. In the midst of these pivotal years, youth need a safe affirming community, authentic meaningful relationships, and caring adults. Highland seeks to offer youth opportunities to discover their identity as beloved children of God, build holy friendships, and offer them adults who can act as a mirror to point out their potential when they are unable to see it themselves. Ultimately, Highland desires to share God’s Transforming Love with youth and equip them to embody Christ’s love.
