3Vs is a non-profit dedicated to middle/high school youth outreach and ministry. We host weekly youth groups, quarterly all-student game nights, and (in non-Covid times) organize off-island tourism excursions for teens.
Our Mission
To connect Lopez youth with each other, their community, and with God.

1. Connection with each other - We provide positive events for all teens so that they might connect with each other outside of school. Crazy activities break down barriers and there's something about sliding down a giant slip-n-slide with your peers or exploring a new city together that builds relationships.

2. Connection with the community - We have trusted adult volunteers at each event to speak life into Lopez teens. Research shows that having five non-parental, inter-generational adults who care positively affects mental health and resiliency in teens. This is not to replace or contradict parents, but to support and come alongside them. In addition, we are active in the community and with other organizations to plug teens into service opportunities throughout the year.

3. Connection with God
We are motivated by and have found hope and life through our faith in Jesus. We believe that spirituality is something teens need to think about, question, and discuss, so we offer the space for this.
