Kids on their turf and in their culture.

Out There in the World of Kids

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust, and consistency.                   

We listen to kids' stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches, and setbacks.

Who is Young Life for?
 
Everyone is welcome in Young Life! Our programs are custom made for kids throughout their adolescent years. Young Life is the name of our organization and is also the term we use for our program with high school students. We call our middle school program WyldLife. The initiative for college and university students is called Young Life College. 

Young Life’s multicultural ministry, focused on kids in diverse cultural communities and those in economically-depressed areas, is arguably the largest of its kind in the United States. We refer to our ministry to kids with disabilities as Capernaum and to our work with teen moms as YoungLives. In a partnership with Military Community Youth Ministries, Young Life reaches military teens through a program called Club Beyond. The Small Towns initiative brings Young Life to communities of fewer than 25,000 people.

We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will impact future decisions, careers chosen, marriages formed, and families raised...all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader reached out and entered their world.

The Five C's of Young Life

 
Young Life began with a few simple ideas about sharing the truth of God’s love with adolescents. Seventy-five years later, those simple ideas have become time tested.

1  Club:  A Party With a Purpose

What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for thousands of kids? 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 a​ll about.

2  Campaigners:  A Time to Learn and Grow
Campaigners (a name that points back to the early days when Young Life was referred to as "The Young Life Campaign") is a weekly meeting for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service, and leadership. Young Life leaders also encourage these kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation.

3  Camp:  The Best Week of Their Lives

 
Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their lives. 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 you experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told?

4  Contact Work:  Caring for Kid​s

Because kids don't care how much you know until they know how much you care; Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, believing in who they can be. Within Young Life, we call the persistent going out into the world of kids "contact work," but kids just call it friendship.​

5  Committee:  Adults Who Care

Young Life is making a difference in the lives of kids around the world because we are supported by adults who care about kids in their community.  In each community, the local "committee" comprised of parents, Young Life alumni, and civic leaders provides a foundation of financial, administrative, and moral support for the local Young Life team.​​​​​
