Young Life thinks the world of kids. We believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Young Life leaders are adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. The kids begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning, and purpose.
Role of a Young Life Leader
We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside, sharing God's love with them. By spending time with kids, the leaders "earn the right to be heard." This is the first step of a lifelong journey. The choices the kids make today, based upon God's love for them, will have an impact on future decisions and future generations - all resulting from a Young Life leader taking the time to reach out and enter their world.
