Young Life is about relationships. In the midst of a world underneath where kids often feel lost, confused, and hopeless, a Young Life leader enters. 
At the heart of all the craziness & fun of weekly Young Life activites, our mission is to deeply care about and enter the lives of kids. In the midst of our relationship with them, we hope to give them a glimspe of what Jesus calls, "life to the full" (John 10:10) , and help them grow in their faith. ​
