Points of Light

Points of Light

Almost 95% of Oakland churches do not have youth programs and workers. Inner city churches are overwhelmed by their communities' needs and hurts, and in most cases, do not have the resources to offer youth and children effective life-changing programs and help to counteract violent trends. Since 2007, The Points of Light/Mighty Blaze programs have been reaching at-risk youth in Oakland by implementing creative and effective faith-based program. POL instills Christian values in youth and children, teaching them to take courage and power and to be a point of light in their communities and providing hope and relief to other youth in their community.
