Young Life is a world-class organization for adolescents. Our staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them — fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance. We've been showing up where they are since 1941.
Young people today face constant pressure to perform and, sometimes, to survive. They’re asking crucial questions: "Can I Make It?" "Am I Enough?" "Is This All There Is?" Kids need friends in a confusing and chaotic world. They need someone in it with them. We're in it with kids and accept them as they are – no strings attached.
We enter their world with no expectation of who kids should be, but with every hope for who they can become. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we believe matters most of all — the truth about God and His love for them.
Young Life is like one big celebration, where all are welcome. It may be club - the best night of the kids’ week; campaigners - a weekly bible study in a small group; or camp - the best week of their lives; or just the invitation to spend time with a leader who has become their friend. But before the fun is over, we share a simple message about God’s love for them.
