Ministry Description
Young Life is a worldwide nonprofit organization for middle school, high-school and college students with the mission of "introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith." Young Life staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them - fun, adventure and friendship. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something we think matters most of all - the truth about God and His love for us. Founded in 1941, Young Life has more than 6,000 staff and 68,000 volunteers and is active in more than 100 countries reaching more than two million kids annually. More than 340,000 guests attend a Young Life weekend or summer camp worldwide annually. Young Life owns and operates 34 resort-quality camps.

As a mission, we’re uniting around these four mission strategies to get us to the next kid in the coming five years (2017-2022). Deeper in Christ—Seeking the Lord first and helping kids grow in their faith. Together—Building and equipping teams that reflect the worldwide body of Christ. Innovation—Creating new ways today to reach kids tomorrow. Growth—Impacting all kids within sight and just out of reach.
