Young Life
September 5, 2009

I have personally watched Young Life change the course of dozens, of lives, and I know of hundreds more that were affected by those same lives. The course of my own life was changed when a Young Life leader befriended me. I went on to become a volunteer leader, to get a degree in Youth Ministry, and to join the staff of Young Life as an Area Director. Kids who were shown the incredible love of God have chosen to live their lives differently as a result, and have brought that change to their families. Kids who didn't think they had a hope, or a future are now young men and women with families and impact on the communities around them, some as Young Life leaders and staff themselves. Even though I am no longer on staff with Young Life, I still work as a volunteer with high school and middle school kids and the perspective and methods I learned in Young Life will stay with me forever.

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

Young Life is an organization that cares about entire communities, from the kids to whom it directly reaches out, to their parents, to the teachers and administration in the local schools, to anyone who believes that kids are worth investing in.
