What is Young Life?

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. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we think matters most of all — the truth about God and His love for us.

Our Vision

We are a mission community of caring adults committed to going where kids are, building relationships and journeying with them as they grow in their faith with Jesus Christ.  We choose to respect and respond to them with Christ’s love independent of their responses to our invitations.
