Young Life is built on genuine and unconditional relationships. Leaders accept kids as they are, spend time with them and listen to them. Leaders enjoy genuine, lasting friendships with all kids regardless of their background, appearance, or beliefs. This relational approach provides kids with caring adult role models who can offer guidance and support for teenagers. Young Life is a non-denominational, non-profit organization with a presence in more than 800 communities nationwide and in more than 45 countries.
