I had a rough family life. YOKE was my solace. I could be myself and my YOKE leaders really cared about me. As a YOKE Leader at Bearden, it was great to share my stories with young kids and the kids are like, 'Yeah, that's what I'm going through.' YOKE helps kids find friends, find themselves, find Jesus." - Zach Cochran, former YOKE kid and Bearden Middle YOKE Folk
