Take Stock in our Youth (literally)
7 of our youth will be traveling to Houston this summer to participate in the ELCA National Youth Gathering (a life transforming experience where they will join with 30,000 other youth from around the world to deepen their faith).
To help offset the cost of this trip Joy youth will be selling “stock” to raise funds for this trip. Those who purchase “stock” will be investing in the future of our youth. As part of your investment you will receive exclusive and personal status reports before, during, and after the National Youth Gathering from those you invest in along with access to our online blog. You will also be invited to a stockholders appreciation event on Monday, July 2 at 7 PM the youth will share video, stories, music, and much more.
