FROM THE EYES OF AN ADOLESCENT, the road through life can seem filled with endless possibilities. There are places to go and landmarks to celebrate. But sometimes, the road is not smooth. Young Life joins middle school and high school kids on their journey — offering them positive and life-changing experiences to help them find their way.
For many kids, THEIR ADVENTURE WITH YOUNG LIFE BEGINS AT CLUB, where the combination of great music, crazy games and a lot of laughs, makes club the place to be. Toward the end of each club, the silliness subsides and a leader shares a message about God that is relevant to kids.
Kids who seek to know more about the message they hear at club also take a pit stop during the week to HANG OUT AT CAMPAIGNERS, where Young Life leaders and their young friends explore the Bible and talk about how it applies to their lives.
YOUNG LIFE LEADERS BUILD FRIENDSHIPS with middle school and high school students at Young Life events, but friendships take root as leaders go where kids are and become a part of their lives. Leaders are caring and reliable adults who know kids well, offer hope and guide them through life’s roadblocks and detours.
Each summer, leaders also GO WITH KIDS TO YOUNG LIFE CAMP. Set in beautiful surroundings, the mission’s 21 camps offer a variety of activities and extraordinary experiences. Throughout their weeklong stay, campers also hear more about God and His amazing love for them.
Young Life is involved in the lives of more than ONE MILLION TEENAGERS in the United States and around the world. For the last two years volunteer leaders have been traveling along side of kids. And no matter what road they’re traveling on, Young Life is there for kids; offering friendship and fun and pointing kids to the ultimate final destination: discovering a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Role of a Young Life Leader
Leaders are committed to being involved with kids' lives -- from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what's important to them. Our leaders help kids consider the direction of their lives, and they offer hope for their future.
