I joined Young Life last year, my senior year of high school. And i absolutely loved it. Young Life helped me to become more outgoing and not be so afraid to talk to people. We'd play silly games where you had to get in front of everyone and do stupid things. But it really helped me loosen up in front of everyone. It was embarrasing but everyone there had done it. It also helped me get a lot closer to God and make the right kind of friends. Now my friends actually listened to what I had to say, and they treated me the right way. They also wanted me to work on my relationship with God. I got to experience Fall Weekend. It was the best weekend of my life. That was the closest I have ever been to God, and I wish I could do it again. I got to go to club every night. We got to sing and dance around and just act stupid. I remember one of my friends let me jump on his back so i could see everything. It was so much fun. I will definitly never forget Young Life or the people I met there. It was just an amazing experience.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
so nice and supportive. They wanted to help me with any of my problems. And were always there cheering me on. Whenever I was having a hard time I knew I could go talk to them and they would know exactly what to say to make me feel better.
