Youth Advance is an organization seeking "to identify young leaders within Churches of Christ in the Northeast, train them in leadership from a Christian perspective, broaden their awareness of opportunities to serve, and unleash them on their congregations and the world at large."

Project Purpose is a tutoring and mentoring ministry to the families of Rolling Hills, a low-income housing development in Pottstown, PA. We are following God’s call to meet the spiritual, educational, and economic needs of these families. Currently, we serve over 90 students in kindergarten-12th grade. Our volunteer tutors are working to connect and build community with the families they work with. They come from all different backgrounds: nurses, teachers, administrators, college students, high school students, pastors, businesswomen. Yet, all of our tutors have the same desire: to use their tutoring sessions to build resilient students who grow to know the true provider of Purpose, Jesus Christ. Through Project Purpose, we hope to bridge the divide that exists between families and the Pottsgrove School District. This can only be done through regular communication with the students’ teachers and their families. To build community, we actively visit the students’ homes. When families feel cared for they can begin to see the purpose to life.
