CLUBS

School clubs are what YOKE is primarily known for, but for us, they’re only the beginning. Our mentors – we call them YOKE Folk – are assigned in teams to one local school. Together they plan and host an energetic and engaging club each week. Clubs meet for an hour and consist of games, silly songs, and skits designed to meet the physical, social, and spiritual needs of middle school students. Each club ends with a brief and relevant life lesson from the Bible.

There are many ways to serve with YOKE, learn about more programs below!

YOKE FOLK

YOKE Folk are mostly college age adults from the community. Many of them serve because of the impact that YOKE had on them as a middle school student.

Each YOKE Folk must submit references, go through an interview process, and pass a background check before being accepted. Once accepted, they are trained in student ministry, including detecting and responding to situations of abuse, and in suicide prevention.

Clubs are offered at no cost and there is no need to register ahead of time. Just show up!

“YOKE began as a requirement for school. I approached it more as an assignment, but I very quickly fell in love with the ministry and it has become something that I am very passionate about. YOKE has changed my life!”
