​Studies show that kids need 5 Adults to help them navigate the chaos of life. We are hoping we can be one of those adults!

Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. They're moms and dads, college students and working professionals, retirees and other Jesus Loving - Kid Loving adults. The diversity of our volunteers helps us make an eternal difference with ALL kinds of kids in ALL kinds of places. 

When you're a leader, you're also joining a community of dynamic staff, leaders, and committee who are committed to personal health, growth, and tranformation while creating healthy spaces for kids to grow and be transformed. 

Are you at a point in your faith journey where you would like to walk alongside middle school students, high school students, college students, kids with disabilities, or teen moms as they navigate the chaos of thier life and the complexity of faith?  We are looking for more Jesus Loving - Kid Loving adults to join us!

How am I supported as a young Life Leader?
​Young Life is a missional community. We spend more time in the world of kids than in community. So we value you being connected to a gathering worship community like a local church.

​Gathering as a community to sharpen our soft + hard skills is valued to do exceptional ministry together. Our optional leadership gatherings meet twice a month on Sundays from 5-6:30pm.

Our area has families and community members who support and care for our leaders by serving on a committee. Our committees care for our leaders through team dinners, hand written notes, and prayer support.
