I wanted to personally let you know that YFC has entered into a national partnership with the filmmakers of the movie Unconditional.  Unconditional is an inspiring movie that raises awareness of ministry with “at risk” youth and moves its viewers to action in their community.  Unconditional is a tool that can highlight the work of YFC and engage new resources in your community. 

MOVIE SYNOPSIS: Samantha Crawford (Lynn Collins - X-Men Wolverine & John Carter), an acclaimed children's book author, went from a woman of faith to a woman in despair when her husband was killed in a senseless act of violence. With no leads and no hope, Sam's moments from taking her own life when God's providence intervenes, uniting her with an old childhood friend, Joe Bradford (Michael Ealy - Barbershop & Think Like A Man).
Dying of kidney disease, Joe spends his last days serving fatherless children in an under-resourced community.  Observing "Papa Joe's" tireless love for his "kids", Sam begins to find new purpose, but has difficulty letting go. The innocence of a child competes with the lure of revenge and answers. When Sam finally learns about her husband's last moments her life and others are never the same.

CALL TO ACTION: Unconditional is more than a movie, it is a call to action. The heart of Unconditional is to be a tool that brings greater awareness and support to organizations serving “at-risk” children & youth.  Unconditional inspires its viewers and calls them to action in their community by partnering with local organizations such as YFC that are serving “at risk” children & youth.  In every major city where the film will be released, they would like for YFC chapters that are serving “at risk” children & youth to become an ACT Partner.  As a national partner and with our local chapters signed up as ACT partners, the movie will advocate for the YFC cause and connect Unconditional viewers with our work.

We encourage you to become an ACT partner with "Unconditional" - The filmmaker’s motivation for making this movie was to motivate people to ACT!  Their strategy is to partner with local ministries who will facilitate their viewers in giving, volunteering, and partnering.  When you sign up to be an ACT Partner they provide you with an ACT page on their web site as a way to connect the local YFC ministry with their viewers.  This is an amazing opportunity for your ministry!
