Ministry Description
Young Life is a worldwide non-profit 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.

With a firm foundation and more than 75 years of experience, Young Life is in the world of kids inviting them to know Christ. We're committed to doing what we do best for even more kids in more places. "Reaching a World of Kids" is our initiative to double the number of kids we reach each year from one million to two million by 2016. We're convinced the mission is uniquely positioned and prepared to take on this challenge. Yet, we know the support of friends and supporters like you is critical!
