Making An Impact

 
Young Life is active in various high schools in Washington County
The presence of a positive role model is crucial to the healthy development of adolescents. In communities where Young Life is present, our leaders have the privilege of walking with kids during these pivitol years. Young Life is a non-denominational Christian ministry making a difference in the lives of kids through the friendship and influence of caring adults.
 
Young Life provides role models, safe activities and a sense of signifigance to high school and middle school students in communities across the United States and around the world.
 
Young Life offers kids:
-The friendship of adults who take the time to relate to kids in their world.
-A chance to gather and have fun in a safe setting outside of school.
-An opportunity to consider the person of Christ in a non-threatening setting.

Caring Role Models

The Young Life Leader
 
Young Life believes that every kid is valuable to God, so much so that he paid the ultimate price for their hearts. Volunteer Leaders have the opportunity to not only share this amazing love story with teenagers, but also live it out alongside them.
 
Although volunteer leaders come in all ages, ethinicities and backgrounds, they all have one thing in common: A passion for christ and for kids. Whatever your age or occupation, if you share this love of Christ and desire for kids to know Him, you have what it takes to be a Young Life Leader.
 
Volunteer leaders are absolutely vital to the mission of Young Life. Without them, there literally not be Young Life. It is their involvement that allows lives to be changed. Young Life leaders participate in a full range of activities that help them build these signifigant relationships with kids. These include:
 
-Contact Work: Spending unstructured time with teens.
-Club: A weekly meeting with an emphasis on fun, high energy and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
-Campaigners: A weekly meeting where teenagers look at the Bible to learn more about God.
-Camp: Weekend or weeklong trips at Young Life's pristine facilities where we promise kids the best time of their lives.  

The Weekly Young Life Club

Club Night!
 
The central Young Life activity during the school year is a weekly gathering, called "club," which usually meets in private homes. Club involves music, games and a brief talk by one of the leaders. This is a great enviornment for kids to take a break from the stress of school and enjoy a night of freedom and joy. Young Life aims to show teens how to live life to the full, and club is a great taste of what that life might be like.
