What is Young Life?

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 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.

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 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.

Camp The Best Week of Their Lives

Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their life. Regardless of which one of Young Life's 17 breath-taking properties in the United States kids attend, they 
go "with" their Young Life leader, rather than being sent! It's a week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of fun, adventure, and five-star dining and where kids experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told.

Campaigners A Time to Question, Learn, and Grow

Campaigners is a weekly gathering for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service, and leadership. 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.

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.
