In The World Of Kids

Caring for Kids — Contact Work

Kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. That's why Young Life staff and volunteer leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, and believing in who they can be. We call this “contact work"—  persistently going out into the world of kids. It's friendship with a vision.


A Party with a Purpose — Club

What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week? We like to think of it as a party with a purpose. It’s controlled chaos that’s almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. Before the party ends, we share a simple message about God’s love for them. After all, that’s what the celebration is all about.


The Best Week of Their Life — Camp

Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their life. That’s a rousing (and unsolicited) endorsement! But how else would you describe a week where deep relationships with leaders and peers are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and where you experience and listen to the greatest love story ever told?

A Time to Question, Learn and Grow — Campaigners

Campaigners is a weekly gathering for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership development. We invite kids to actively follow Jesus— and we’re with them for the long haul to help them take those steps of faith with unconditional love. Along the way, we encourage kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local church.

Adults Who Care — Committee

Young Life is making a difference in the lives of kids around the world because we are supported by adults who care about kids in their community. For every talented Young Life staff person there is a team of dedicated volunteers who works directly with kids. In each community, the local “committee,” comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders, provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.
