What is Young Life?
A fundamental need of young people is for a stable, supportive bond with a caring adult. For seven decades, Young Life has been providing strong, positive influences in the lives of young people. Young Life is Christian adults who build relationships with teenagers. You will find Young Life leaders in the stands of football games, band practices, and taking kids to the mall. Young Life leaders model trust, respect and responsibility to their young friends, and they do it within a meaningful context, with the context of a teenager’s world. Young Life’s purpose is to show adolescents Jesus Christ and His relevance to their life.
“Pat and I hold a deep respect for the ministry of Young Life because it appeals to kids right where they are, and in an attractive way exposes them to Godly principles for living. It drew our two sons into a closer relationship with the Lord, and provided them with many deep friendships that will last a lifetime. It is also a way for many of us that are caught up in the pressures of the world to influence our kids positively through our financial support.” - Joe Gibbs, former NFL football coach and Nascar Racing owner
