Review for Young Life, Colorado Springs, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As a kid in a youth group influenced by Young Life I renewed my relationship with Jesus and have been walking closely with him ever since. As a post-college student trying to find my way in the world, I volunteered with Young Life and caught the bug for reaching kids for eternity. Now as a thirty-something I'm serving on a committee and mentoring leaders. Throughout all of my experience with YL I have seen God at work in the lives of countless teens and witnessed the selflessness of so many leaders. This is an organization worth putting your money, your time and your talent behind. The eternal impact is huge and the people running this organization are both Godly and committed to running the race to the end.

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

the sincerity of the staff and volunteers in their desire to relate to kids and share their love for Jesus with others.

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

plant new work in the most unreached areas in the US and begin to cultivate the gospel in the city and in the rural areas that are often forgotten.
