At YFC, we are concerned about many issues facing young people today. Here in Saskatoon, the sexual exploitation of young people has been a problem for many years. Consider, in the world today, the average age a lady gets involved with the sex trade is 13-14; 47% of ladies in the sex trade are under the age of 18. (see DefendDignity for more info). Also, there have been reported cases of girls as young as 9 in Saskatoon who have been diagnosed with sexually transmitted infections. This needs to change.
Connected to that, in one way or another, is the issue of pornography in the lives of teenagers. The average age most people start viewing porn is 11, and over 90% of youth will view porn by the time they turn 18. (for more, see Covenant Eyes)
Therefore, we are connected with a local group, SaskatoonACTS , who is attempting to address these issues in Saskatoon. We believe the mission of YFC will help bring change: "YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement."
