Parachutes Teen & Resources Club is a drop in center for teens 13-18. They have video games, pool, computers, ping pong, a small café, special events and most importantly caring adult volunteers who want to share their lives with teens.
Parachutes is a place where teens can feel safe from the hardships of life. The teens that come in, come from diverse backgrounds and ethnicity, but the common thread with many is that they have an unstable or unhealthy home environment.
Parachutes shows these teens the unconditional love of Jesus. They do this through activities and just hanging out and having conversations.
Parachutes is hosting its first ever retreat focused around Biblical messages & spiritual activities June 30-July 3rd. They want to keep the cost down for the kids and are asking for $500 in donations towards this retreat. Visit their website parachutesalaska.org for more info.
