BBQ Celebration for Youth, Friends & Families at Alpine Youth Center – July 28, 2018

It has been a little while since Behold Christian Ministry @ Alpine Youth Center did an activity inviting our youth, friends, and families throughout our communities to join for a time of feasting and fellowship.  We have decided to do a bbq (hot dogs, hamburgers, etc.,)  You are invited!  Take a tour.  Learn how you can pray for us as volunteers love kids week after week. A cool place to relax and interact with folks who love Jesus!  Moreover, we hope to have activities for the youth as our most energetic volunteers determine… 🙂

If you’d like to know what the Alpine Youth Center is all about or just want to check it out… please visit and have a hot dog… support our efforts to reach the youth of Alpine through the power of the gospel!  And, say hi to familiar faces and meet a few new folks!  My desire is to kindle relationships, even for a moment with much love and joy!

We always are in need of volunteers to oversee the kids, especially as the fall semester begins in August 2018.

If you’d like to support, but do not have the time to volunteer, we are accepting donations as the Lord leads your joyful giving heart!   No pressure! Pass on this event and if you have time this weekend, drop in for a few or stay for a good while and enjoy hanging out.

Alpine Youth Center Seeking VOLUNTEERS & DONATIONS for Much Needed Improvements

May 2017 Alpine Ca. 91901 – The Alpine Youth Center (AYC) is going on four years of providing a safe haven for a variety of kids looking for a warm, semi-structured and welcoming place to interact, chill-out, and be supported in “living healthy” in a sometimes unhealthy world.  Although we have recently gone through changes in leadership, our goals and mission remain constant.  If you are not familiar with the Alpine Youth Center please watch this really FUN and informational video! Enjoy!  WATCH VIDEO

Through the leadership of a Board of Directors, volunteer staff, friends of the AYC, local churches, and caring individuals from our Alpine community, we continue to practically love and offer developing youth a safe place to reside after school from 2 to 6pm.  Sundays we are open from 12 to 4pm for engaging activities.

Many families, single, married, our Alpine parents, grandparents, moms and dads value the Alpine Youth Center and what we have provided to their children over the years.  Moreover, the AYC is an ongoing benefit to our Alpine community!  For example, youth are less likely to engage in destructive or unhealthy ways of being because they have a healthy and friendly place to go after school.

Furthermore, the AYC staff consistently offer support and encouragement!  Staff volunteers get to know the kids, spend time with, develop activities, set boundaries, essentially love our youth 6 days out of the week.   Our practical goal is to teach, role model a healthy lifestyle, and promote a constant message to persevere in ways that are socially acceptable and rewarding.

The Alpine Youth Center is a Christian based organization.  We are a 501c(3) recognized non-profit in California under Behold Christian Ministry.  We welcome all youth to be involved and never push or force our Christian views.  However, we do present the amazing grace of God, practically love, and meet youth wherever they might be in this journey of life.

To continue fulfilling our mission, we need community support.   Not only do we need volunteers who agree with our mission, but we need financial support.  We are looking for consistent monthly “champions” who are able to give $100 a month to support our efforts.  If that doesn’t work, we appreciate any amount doable for your giving budget.

We desperately need new flooring, window coverings, etc., however, we have no funds to significantly upgrade the AYC in these essential areas.  If you’d like to give a financial gift toward this end, please joyfully do!   As we move forward and accomplish upgrading, we will be inviting our Alpine community to visit!  An open house is approaching to ask questions, clarify who we are, our goals, and most importantly, how you can be involved!

Please consider financially supporting the Alpine Youth Center.

Most sincerely, and Thank you!

Clay Maudin for 2017 Honorary Mayor of Alpine, Proceeds to benefit the Alpine Youth Center



12809548_1105270762857754_8651233039469699902_nI am running for Honorary Mayor of Alpine and all of my donation /  “Votes” will benefit the Alpine Youth Center. Each dollar collected is a “vote”. The candidate with the most “votes” will become the new Honorary Mayor of Alpine.

The reason I have chosen to support the Alpine Youth Center over the past 3 years (which is a non-profit organization located in the middle of town) is because it brings the community together and is open to all the kids of alpine free of charge! It gives them a safe, supervised place where they can all come hang out with their friends or do homework after school.

Behold_Alpine-Youth-Center_August-2013-outing1They also offer tutoring, homework help, and any counseling the kids might be seeking for help with everyday life.

During the sunnier seasons they love to ride their bikes and scooters on the property and play outdoor sports such as basketball or tag. During the colder seasons they hang out inside and enjoy watching movies, and playing pool or racket ball. The girls really enjoy hanging out with the older girls and doing things like nail painting and doing each others hair.

Every dollar raised by a candidate is considered a vote for that candidate. And the candidate who brings in the most votes is considered the winner.
