Sunstate Bank recently partnered with Miami Youth For Christ (YFC) to stop youth violence by rappelling a ten-story building to raise awareness for this great cause. Miami YFC is committed to empowering the children, youth, and families of our community by providing faith-based services that enhance their emotional, spiritual, physical, and educational well-being through various outreach programs.

Participants from Over the Edge for Miami Youth For Christ


The center runs 35 programs weekly at 15 ministry sites servicing over 5,000 youth annually. This year’s fund raising campaign was to #StopYouthViolence. Sunstate Bank is YFC’s bank, and an important component of Sunstate’s Mission is to give back to the communities we serve. Through a direct contribution by Sunstate Bank, and contributions from friend and families of the Bank, we were able to raise almost $3,000 in support of the Mission of Youth for Christ.
