Lakeside Academy is a placement center in Kalamazoo (Operated by Sequel Youth and Family Services) for kids ages 11-17 who have been in trouble with the law. These kids can get help with their problems, continue to work on their education, and learn life skills. They come from all over the state of Michigan and live at Lakeside for up to six months to a year.
Youth for Christ’s staff and volunteer teams hold chapel services for the students every Wednesday evening. We have seen many of them make life changing decisions as they open their hearts to Jesus Christ. We have seen many kids transition from being drug dealers and gang members to becoming sincere followers of Christ! As requested, we provide Bibles and Bible study materials for all the residents.
