Crime among youthful offenders is the most rapidly growing segment of corrections. The number of institutions for youthful offenders has doubled since 1995. This presents a unique opportunity for the Church to be physically present in ministry to this segment of the incarcerated community. Kairos has developed Kairos Torch to facilitate ministry to youthful offenders.
Torch offers unconditional love and acceptance, encouraging young men and women up to age 25 years to share their life journey through participation in a long term mentoring process. What a rewarding opportunity to help change the course of a young person's life! more
Delaware is currently working on holding their first Kairos Torch Weekend at Ferris School in Wilmington. A date has not yet been set.
