Young Life began with a few simple ideas about sharing the truth of
God’s love with adolescents. Seven decades later, those simple ideas have
become time-tested methods for reaching out to middle school, high school and
college students in friendship and hope.
Because kids don't care how much you know till they know how much you
care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them
as they are, believing in who they can be. Within Young Life we call the
persistent going out into the world of kids "contact work," but kids
just call it friendship.
What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the
week for thousands of kids every 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. And before the party ends, we share a simple message
about God's love for them. After all, that's what the celebration is all
