Victoria Schrueders 

Victoria feels it is a blessing to be given the opportunity to work with Youth Unlimited/YFC in the Mitchell area. She started with YFC in 2019 at the North Perth satellite not knowing how attached she would become to the youth and how much she would love working with them. The Lord has continued to open the doors for Victoria and she feels such joy being given the opportunity to serve the youth in Mitchell. Her vision is to create a space where youth can feel loved and cared for. Supporting them mentally, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

If you would like to encourage Victoria, you can drop off letters or cards at the UTMC church office or reach her at victoria.s@yfcmitchell.com.
