Take a look at our sample material...

The Crux is Youth for Christ’s groundbreaking Extended Schools Resource. The Crux is designed to be run in secondary schools by local volunteers or teaching professionals as part of the Government’s Extended Schools initiative – but can be easily adapted for a younger or older age range. Since its launch in November 2007, the Crux is now running in over 100 schools nationally and engaging contact with 2500 young people. The former Government advisor on Extended Schools has praised the resource whilst young people and volunteers involved have been overwhelmingly positive.

Each terms resource consists of 60 interactive sessions, spread over five key strands – providing an innovative programme for every day of the school year from a clear Christian perspective. The five key strands are:

Risk IT The Technology Stream
Sport The Sports Stream
Cre8iv The Creative Arts Stream
Discovery The Current Affairs Stream
Express The Spirituality Stream
