105 Gibson Youth Services are designed to support and mentor youth in our neighborhood. We see the potential and capabilities in youth and believe they deserve a loving and supporting community that they feel belonged to. Therefore, we build this space for them where they can experience love, faith, and hope; together with a series of multi-ethnic empowerment program, we hope to turn these young men and women into outstanding world citizens with characters grounded in the image of Jesus Christ. Highlighted programs include:
