Young Life
October 1, 2009

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.

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
