Crestview Youth Academy has had a busy month this month! We started with a Super Bowl watch party on February 7th! Staff and youth were able to watch the game together while enjoying some delicious food! Everyone had a great time cheering on their team! 

Also this month, our youth supported our local community clothing swap through volunteering! This event supports hundreds of families in Crestview and allows them to be able to get gently used clothes for their children! Our youth helped to move heavy boxes, organize clothes, haul trash, set up the event and tear it down. Lifepoint Church (the host) was more than grateful for the heavy lifting and great energy the boys supplied!
