Making An Impact

Young Life is activiely in relationship with teens across our city in public schools and private schools. Additionally, YoungLives has a thriving program for teen mom's and their babies with a budding parallel program for young teen dads. 

Young Life & Young Lives is making a significant difference in our teens and beyond.​​

​What Does Young Life Look Like?

Caring for Kids Contact Work

Because kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, and believing in who they can be. Within Young Life we call the persistent going out into the world of kids “contact work.” But kids just call it friendship.

A Time to Question, Learn and Grow — Campaigners

Campaigners is a weekly gathering for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. We invite kids to actively follow Jesus Christ — and we’re with them for the long haul to help them take those steps of faith with unconditional love. Along the way, we encourage kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation.​

A Party with a PurposeClub

What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for thousands of kids every week? We like to think of it as a party with a purpose! It’s controlled chaos that’s almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. And before the party ends, we share a simple message about God’s love for them. After all, that’s what the celebration is all about.

The Best Week of Their LifeCamp

Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their life. That’s a rousing (and unsolicited) endorsement! But how else would you describe a week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and where you experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told?

Adults Who CareCommittee

Young Life is making a difference in the lives of kids around the world because we are supported by adults who care about kids in their community. For every talented Young Life staff person there is a team of dedicated leaders who work directly with kids. In each community, the local “committee,” is comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders who provide a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.

The Family of God — Churches

In Young Life, we want to walk alongside kids in their entire faith journey, from before they knew Christ to helping them grow in their faith.  We believe students must get plugged into a local church so they can experience the family of Christ for a lifetime.
