St. Stephen Invites Former Youth Alive Participants to Camp

More than one-hundred at-risk youth in west Louisville are looking for alternatives after learning the Youth Alive organization has suspended operations. Community Activist Christopher 2X says families are considering their options, after learning of the closure by letter from the organization.“It’s going to take a lot of sorting through different families’ minds about where their children will best be placed in long-term programs, whether that be in Boys and Girls Clubs, other youth provider groups, etc," he says. "I know Youth Alive provided at least four or five different options.”St. Stephen Baptist Church has agreed to let the former Youth Alive participants into its summer camp in June and July.Youth Alive folded under two lawsuits and the inability to obtain liability insurance after a December incident in which four teenagers died in a car crash after a Youth Alive event.
