Young Life’s mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus and help them grow in their faith. In both its programs and people, it wants to be intentional about bridging the gap to kids who are outside the faith. Young Life’s great desire is to see lives changed by the power of the gospel.
Young Life utilizes volunteer leaders to mentor students and build relationships with them. The volunteer leaders walk with kids though the turbulent times of middle school and high school, journeying with them through their highs and lows. The leaders attend sporting events, lunches, Friday night football games, plays, and early morning breakfasts, all with the hope of building friendships that point adolescents to Jesus Christ.
