BIG vision for their future

We have a BIG vision for the future of the youth we serve. In our vision we see the statistics surrounding these young men and women changing drastically for the better. We see our readers encouraging their peers and creating a culture for change within the facilities and the communities they live in. This is a BIG vision but we have a BIG God. We want to be a key part of that culture shift. To accomplish this, our dream is to provide FREESTYLE (formerly FRUIT. magazine) to every juvenile justice facility in the US and beyond.

FREESTYLE Clubs

Our FREESTYLE Clubs (formerly FRUIT. Magazine Clubs) are like a book club for the magazine. The clubs read through articles and then use discussion questions to help youth dig deeper into the topics in the magazine and think of how they can apply what they’ve learned personally. Clubs typically meet once a month in a juvenile justice facility. If you are interested in starting a FREESTYLE Club, you can find the leader guide in the back of all magazines after Issue 20. If you would like to do a club for an older issue you can find the leader guide here. We just ask that you contact us and let us know you how many youth are attending your club.

 

FREESTYLE Release Parties

After we have released a new issue of FREESTYLE, we throw a FREESTYLE Release Party at a rotation of facilities in the Greater Houston area. We bring DJ’s and artists and special guests to speak/perform. We follow each release party with sharing the Gospel and having a time for response and prayer.
