Bakerfield Community prays before club

An Essential Foundation

Committee is the foundation for Young Life in a local area. In fact, new Young Life clubs start because of the interest and awareness created by the committee. We also welcome the involvement of adult Young Life alumni, whose enthusiasm about their Young Life experiences is invaluable to a committee. In Kern County, we refer to our committee as our Missions Team as we desire to be actionable in all we do. 

Who constitues a Committee?
A committee is a group of adults who believes in the mission of Young Life: to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. You'll find adults from all different backgrounds, careers, and churches, including lots of moms and dads who care about kids. They provide a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team. Ask your area staff person for a local list, and feel free to call these folks with your questions at any time.

Each committee member is asked to make a two (2) year committment to reduce turnover and realize the full potential of their influence.
