They get it. Jesus is life and they focus on Jesus which I think is the transformational figure in all of humanity.

I met Jesus when I was invited to attend a Young Life camp as a Sophomore in H.S. I had no idea they would be talking about Jesus...I am glad that's not the first thing my friend sold me on...it was hot girls and parasailing! The girls were there...the parasailing was there...but so was Jesus...waiting for me. What a great ministry as my leader came along side of me and loved me well. What a picture of the Gospel. Young Life does outreach the very best!

Of the utmost trained and committeed people in youth ministry

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything

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

YL is getting so big it could start to loose its core as a grass roots organization and become too institutional.

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

Charlie Patton has great legs

I have been involved with Young Life for over 25 years as both a volunteer and a donor. It is our favorite ministry because of its impact on reaching teenagers. They have the best and most systematic approach to presenting Jesus Christ to unchurched teens that I know of. And their ability to recruit and retain dozens of young volunteers is a testament to the effectiveness of this ministry. Young Life will continue to be our #1 recipient.

The Great!

God uses the language of Young Life to speak to high school kids, and, boy, do they listen. I've seen so many lives changed through this organization: kids turned from the roads they were heading down, redirected from bad decisions, loved through hard times.

The Great!

I have a 20-yr old woman living with me and my family because of the brokenness in her own biological family. Divorce, drugs and materialism brought her nothing but disappointment and abandonment for most of her life. Now, after years of adults pouring into her life through Young Life, she has hope and a future. Young Life not only taught her about Jesus, but showed her about His love. She is forever changed, I have seen the transformation myself over the last 6 years.

I was a YL kid in the 1980's, volunteer leader, donor and staff. My husband and I will ALWAYS donate to YoungLife because it works! It is the best youth organization out there because YoungLife leaders care about kids more than numbers or programs.

SOOOOOOOO dedicated! YL staff & volunteers rock!

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

change the world... one kid at a time! YoungLife needs to be in every school!

YoungLife leaders seek out kids who don't have positive role models in their lives. I have seen kids lives totally changed by their leaders taking time to get to know them and pour into their lives. At camp this summer, I saw many kids, but two specifically, who's lives were so changed by the experience that they have come home and made serious life changes. Their respective leaders continue to walk along side of them!

I've been involved with Young Life in some capacity for about 13 years and can not say enough good things. Every time I am at an event or program I grow and am inspired to do more. The organazation as a whole has to me one of the most efficient ministries in the world stretching every dollor for greater impact. Thank you YL for all you do, all you've done, and all you have yet to do...each and every time with a smile, in love, and with everything you have.

The Great!

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

helping me to grow spiritually as I have served. This organization has helped me grow more in my faith than any Church or ministry I have been involved with.

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

the honesty, transparancy, and the focus of what is truely important: loving kids and introducing them to Christ.

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

All levels from interns to full time staff. People that raise their own support and those that are on salary.

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

support area directors with funding. Not 100%, but enough to ease the burden of fundraising.
