Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.

Our Vision

We are committed to introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grown in their faith. Young Life also aims to establish and maintain a presence at all high schools and middle schools in the local area.

Your Support

We believe that in order to reach kids we must go where they go and enter their world. Every week in our local area, Young Life staff and volunteers can be found at school events and practices and at kids' favorite hangouts. In many cases, they are the only adult friends kids have in their lives. Our work could not be done without your support. We are grateful for your gift to Young Life. Thank you for all you do to help us reach generations of kids who desperately need to hear a message of hope.

Thank you! We could not do it without you!

Thank you for loving local high school kids as much as we do.  Your generosity in financial giving has opened the doors to every high school Young Life is currently in in our area.  Local high school kids are experiencing the hope and freedom of Jesus Christ directly because of your love and support.  Thank you friends!

Young Life is committed to caring for our donors well and we hope that this website will be an additional way for us to care for you.  You will be updated with stories and pictures of kids from leaders themselves on a regular basis! God is good and big things are happening in our local high schools!  Our desire is that you would be as encouraged and blessed by this mission as we are as staff and leaders.
