Young Life is a nonprofit that produces the most change in teens life than any group I have ever had experience with. I have been involved with Young Life as a high school student, going to clubs & 3 camps. Then throughout college & grad school I was a leader & student staff. Being involved in young life has had a life changing effect on my life, and the lives of countless others. Camps are awesome and are 5 star resorts. Anyone involved in Young Life has an honest love for teens and for Jesus.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being a high school student in need of a purpose in life and discovering my purpose in life is rooted in knowing God, and I found that through Young Life

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

start more Young Life areas in more towns.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the honest, pure, fun approach to life. Showing others that being a Christian isn't about following a list of rules, but having a relationship with God and living life to the fullest.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

honest, friendly, loving and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach soo many more teens, be able to start ministries in towns where it is just waiting to flourish.

Ways to make it better...

more of my friends could have come to camp with me...money was a factor.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

Young Life has always been a responsible group with money. It is always carefully planned and budgeted for everything. Yet, at the same time they don't cut corners, quality is important.

I started Young LIfe in the 6th grade and went to every club and every camp I could until I graduated. I was eager to become a leader once I got to college. I went through QUEST and became a middle school leader at the middle school I attended as a kid. I love YoungLife. I love meeting new kids and seeing them at our club meeting every Tuesday night! YoungLife camps are five-star! They are so strategic from their speakers and messages to the games and music played! It is truly LIFE CHANGING! Life is meant to be lived through valuable relationships; With God and with people.

I was first introduced to Christ through Young Life nearly 20 years ago, and obviously - it ROCKED MY WORLD and CHANGED MY LIFE. Through the years I have done what I have been able to do to continue to give back and serve such a beautiful ministry that is so close to my heart for obvious reasons. Young Life reaches out to the farthest unreachable kid and let's them know they are loved by people here, and most importantly by a God who is just dying to spend time with them. Kids today -- SOOO need to hear that and feel that and KNOW that. The great thing about YL is that it speaks to kids in 'their language' so they can hear it too and if they don't get the whole 'Jesus thing' or choose not to listen, that's OK too - they are still loved and welcomed with the open arms of their leaders and Jesus who died on the cross for them. As a Young Life student - a camper at Woodleaf and Malibu - a work crew worker - a leader while in college and now a leader as I begin to watch my own family grow - I am filled with joy and I continue to grow spiritually each day by being a part of it all. God Bless the ministry and the volunteers and workers who have dedicated their hearts, homes, lives and prayers to reaching the unreachable teens out there!!!

The first time I did anything with Young Life was when I went to Summer Camp at Rockbridge. It was the greatest week of my life. I'm really glad that I went. It helped me realize that someone out there cared about me, and I was never going to be alone in the world. I was always going to have God in my life. And he would always love me for who I was even if no one else did. Young Life is a great organization for high school. I'm really glad I became a part of it. Now, I'm a leader in training to help kids discover what I did.

I have grown up in Young Life an watched as it has transformed not only my family but our community with the gospel. I love that Young Life is so relational! It is one thing to have 100 kids show up every week for campaigners but it is anouther thing to know that all of those kids are meeting one on one with a leader. And that person is helping them to grown in their faith. It is crazy, Exciting, fun and chalenging all in one! I am so blessed to have Young Life as a part of my life!!!

Young Life has been the second greatest thing in my life, and the greatest thing in my life happened at Young Life camp, and that's coming into a relationship with Jesus Christ. Because of Young Life I have become a better person. I am now more involved in my community and giving back to those who are a lot less fortunate than I am. Young Life's motto says it all, "you were made for this."

Young Life has been changing my life since the moment I was first involved. I first went to Young Life as a broken high school student looking to have fun with friends and wound up changing my life forever! My Young Life leaders presented the gospel of Jesus Christ to me in a way I had never heard before, and I wanted to hear more. I ended up going to camp that summer and dedicated my life to better things than drinking and partying with people I thought were my friends. Young Life taught me that I can live a respectable life and have the time of my life doing it! Now, 5 years later, I am a leader showing kids just like me that there is more to life than chasing temporary highs; It's about self-respect and Jesus.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that it is about showing kids who Jesus really is. He's not just a character in a book, he is living and struggled through life just like you and I do.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

AMAZING. Young Life staff and volunteers are some of my best friends. They genuinely care about God, people, and living life to the fullest.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

show kids in more cities all around the world how to fill the emptiness they feel in their hearts. Young Life teaches kids that they can have more fun than they could ever imagine while living their lives for something greater than themselves.
