Last week our speakers were from Richfield Young Life Presenting were Cesar Castillejos and Darby Voeks. They told of their work with the youth of Richfield and how their work has had to change because of Covid. They now use zoom and instagram/facebook to reach out to kids. Every Tuesday they work in person with kids at schools to give teachers a break. They also tutor by zoom to help students stay current in the challenging virtual environment. The Young Life leaders make a special effort to meet kids where they are by attending concerts, sports events, and one on one walks.  Our club has given a $400.00 donation to assist their work.
