Christy Young - site coordinator
Alta vista charter high school Kc, MO
Christy Young is excited to be part of the forerunner program in the Kansas City metro area. She will be the first CIS site coordinator that has served in Alta Vista High School. At AVHS, most of the students come from Latino backgrounds and speak Spanish. This is very important to Christy since she was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico. During her childhood, her parents sacrificed much for her academic and personal development, involving moving back and forth internationally for her to learn other languages and succeed in her education. These privileges inculcated in her a desire to turn around and give whatever she could for other students to succeed and reach their full potential.
As a result, in 2012, Christy began to travel and engage in international programs, like Youth with A Mission in Switzerland, Children-at-risk in Brazil, and Iris Ministries in Mozambique to serve children and youth who face many challenges that try to keep them from achieving their goals.
Christy will complete her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management in 2019. She has been married to John-Scott for over a year and loves traveling with him to hike mountains, see beautiful cities, and explore different cultures. In her free time, Christy enjoys horse-back riding, water-coloring, cycling, reading, and resting in a hammock.
