CARING FOR KIDS–CONTACT WORK
Young Life goes into the world of kids, crossing barriers to build bridges of authentic friendship. We enter their world with no expectation of who kids should be, but with every hope for who they can become. Leaders are committed to being involved in kids’ lives—from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what’s important to them. Within Young Life we call the persistent going out into the world of kids “contact work”, but kids just call it friendship. Young Life is an experience of fun, adventure, grace, and truth. We also want to have shared, meaningful experiences with students. That’s why we invite them to different events throughout the year. Check out our calendar to see what’s coming up.
A PARTY WITH A PURPOSE–CLUB
Some people refer to this time of the week as recess for teens or a party with a purpose. However it’s described, Club is a place where everyone is welcome. During this time, students have the chance to laugh, have fun, be themselves and forget about the other things going on in their life. 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 LIFE–CAMP
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?

A TIME TO ask questions & GROW–CAMPAIGNERS
Campaigners is a weekly gathering for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service, and leadership. Our Campaigners group typically meets on Tuesday nights. However, be sure and check our calendar for a list of the most current events. During our time together, 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.
