Young Life is not a program. Young Life starts when adults are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their world. When they get there, authentic friendships are formed. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So, Young Life leaders log many hours with kids around the world. Leaders attend football practices in the Minneapolis suburbs, mingle with teenagers at a mall in Stockholm and play pick-up soccer with former child-soldiers in Liberia. Leaders listen and learn what’s important to kids - joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
Young Life hinges on the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
