OUR FUNDRAISING STORY

Lake Hughes, California | Created: November 15, 2019

For many young adults, it’s really difficult figuring out the next step in life. There’s the pressure to make money and gain work experience, find a strong and supportive community, learn necessary “adulting” skills, grow deeper in a walk with God, and receive mentorship and direction for the future; that’s a tall order! That’s why The Oaks Camp and Conference Center designed a program that gives young adults the space and freedom to gain all of these things in a supportive environment!

The Oaks Discipleship Program provides a seven-month work-study style internship that provides onsite room and board. Participants will be given hands-on training in departments all across camp (landscaping, accommodations, adventure activities, kitchen/dining, etc.) which gives them the ability to build resume-qualified experience and also learn their strengths and preferences for different types of work. They will also be given classes invaluable life skills such as budgeting and personal finances, writing a resume and applying to jobs, and more! But perhaps most importantly of all, they will be brought into the community and spiritual life of camp through group gatherings, Bible studies, and one-on-one mentoring that will challenge and encourage them in their faith!

The impact of this program has been immensely encouraging! It really has proved to be the next step in life many of these young adults have needed. One past participant shared, “The Oaks Discipleship Program has helped me grow more in my knowledge of God and the Bible. I am very grateful to God for giving me this opportunity!”

But running this kind of program requires a lot of resources, hours, and staff! In fact, it costs The Oaks about $20,000 a year to operate, which is why it is only possible through the generous support of donors that we’re even able to offer this program to urban young adults who need it! And what better way to contribute to a life-changing program than through something you’re already purchasing: your daily cup of coffee!
