YoungLives is a special ministry focus of Young Life reaching out to pregnant and parenting teenagers. There are many ways to get involved: mentor, committee member, financial partner, childcare volunteer and so much more. There is a place for YOU in YoungLives!
Mentoring forms the heart of YoungLives. Mentors build relationships with teen moms, offering guidance in matters of faith, parenting and self-worth. This investment of time and heart has empowered positive, sustainable change in the lives of these beautiful families for more than 20 years.
YoungLives club is our primary outreach event and provides a safe place for teen moms to come together to build friendships. Food, activities, music and childcare make club a fun place to hear about God’s love. Other YoungLives activities may include Bible study, group outings and life skills education.
YoungLives camp is an extraordinary place! Mentors accompany teen moms and their babies to camp for a respite from the chaos of their daily struggles. Here, with their physical and childcare needs met, teen moms are immersed in the love God and can focus on their future.
YoungLives uses mentoring, Bible study, and a variety of other discipleship methods to instill in teen moms core values about herself, her child, her relationships and her world.
