Street Peace is an outreach program to at risk youth
An alarming increase in challenging behaviour of young teens in our cities has increasingly become a problem in our time.
In Frankston, weekly there is an increase of at-risk youth congregating in the local shopping centre. These kids range from ages as young as 10 through to 18 years old. Many of them come from extremely dysfunctional families, do not attend a school or an education program, and are sleeping rough.
They congregate daily in Frankston, as their only real form of family and community are each other. These kids desperately need to be loved and cared for. Their stories will make you cry as you learn of the physical, emotional and sexual abuse many of them of encountered growing up.
Help Street Peace to bring love, care, hope, and transformation to these beautiful lost kids lives through the power of the Gospel and caring mentorship.
Street Peace is headed up by Jahleel (Jay) Shelling. Jahleel leads a team to these vulnerable kids in Frankston – Please consider supporting this great outreach.
A word from Jay
I am so excited about the launch of Street Peace to bring love, care, hope, and transformation to these beautiful lost kids lives through the power of the Gospel and caring mentorship.
We are raising funds to launch the pilot program here in Frankston. These funds will go towards renting a space in Frankston city, building a website, feeding these youth, weekly youth excursions, mentorship training, and placing outreach workers on the streets each week to connect and care for these kids.
Street Peace has an amazing opportunity not only to step in and see these youth lives changed but also to be part of a solution to a current issue faced by our traders and council.
Many of these young people hang around Frankston, solely because they have found a sense of family and community with each other. Because many of these kids come from the same family disfunctions, their past and future narratives are all the same.
It is our intention to try to break into their world with a new narrative, surrounding them with people who are succeeding in life and, through mentorship, change their story and let them find their true potential and purpose.
