We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning, and purpose.


What's Young Life all about?


If you ask students to describe Young Life, they’ll likely say it’s the most fun they have all week.


Young Life is about building deeper relationships with friends and making lasting memories together.


In the middle of all of the fun, we believe each student is looking for a sense of significance in our world.

[My Young Life leader] is the first person I’ve known that I can talk to about my life.

[Without Young Life] I’d be just another depressed teenager who graduates from high school not knowing Christ. I’d try to be living life on my own.
