What services or programs does your nonprofit provide?
Young Life is an interdenominational organization with the goal of having trained leaders actively meeting students and building healthy relationships. Through those friendships, we earn the right to talk with students and give them the opportunity to consider the Christian faith and then to help them grow in their faith.
Young Life meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday
Young Life is open to all students — we offer weekly and monthly options for fun and connection and there is no cost for students to be involved. Our summer camping and seasonal trips do have some cost involved. Our greatest need is for people of faith to come alongside us and help us to impact this next generation with their time and resources (financial and leadership).
