You may have been wondering, “What is Young Life?” & “Who is behind it?”

Young Life is a Christian youth organization of concerned adults committed to helping young people make their way through, what is at times, a confusing world. We desire to be friends and role models and make ourselves available to the needs of teens.
Our aim is to provide teens with an exciting, positive and safe atmosphere within which they can learn about healthy relationships and discover for themselves who they are and how they might relate to God. Responsible Young Life leaders will be accompanying the young people on this well-planned trip. Our goal is to always have a 1 Adult to 5 Teen ratio for supervision.
