Parents of High Schoolers
We want to partner with you! Here are a few ways to stay connected.
Email Us: ( / ) Any important info about your young person that will help us care for him/her! (Things we like to know: any special needs, life changes/concerns, exciting stuff, and the hard stuff.)
Parent Blog: There are book reviews, announcements, and family faith ideas.
Small Group Leaders: Get to know your young person's small group leader, invite them to games/plays/competitions. Invite them out for coffee/dinner. They are a cheerleader for you as well as your young person!
WLCYOUTH Facebook Page: Liking our Facebook page is another great way to get updates on things happening. WLCYouth Facebook Page
