Growing up is tough, especially in a culture filled with sexual pressures, drug abuse and disintegrating family life. Cru’s ministry to middle and high school students (formerly called Student Venture) seeks to create opportunities for every teenager to know and follow Christ.

In the New York metropolitan area, Cru’s ministry to youth is centered in Brooklyn. Bible studies, retreats, talks by professional athletes, and sports clinics are some of the ways Cru staff members engage with teenagers.
