What is NFYL Capernaum?

​​While all North Fulton Young Life activities are open to every student, friends with special needs can also experience faith, fun and adventure through NFYL Capernaum.  They discover a place to build friendships through Capernaum Clubs, opportunities for Camping adventures, All Area Events and relationships with Capernaum Leaders and Buddies. 

Typically individuals with special needs (ages 14-23) participate in NFYL Capernaum with additional opportunities in leadership for those serving as a Capernaum Buddy, Capernaum Leader or in Capernaum Beyond (age 23+ or graduated from high school). Presently, families come from Roswell, Alpharetta, Milton and surrounding communities. 

Capernaum Buddy: Juniors & Seniors in high school who encourage their friends with special needs to explore and grow in faith through friendship and meaningful fun.

Capernaum Leader:  Adults who invest in friends with special needs by accepting them as they are, sharing life & adventure, and inviting them to explore faith in God

Capernaum Beyond: Capernaum friends (age 23+ or graduated from high school) with a peer leadership role in NFYL Capernaum Club who seek to grow their faith and participate in service opportunities.
