What is a Young Life Leader?

The Role of a Young Life Leader

Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

So, Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what's important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
 
We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically affected when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
 
This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God's love for them, will make an impact on future decisions … careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. These all ripple from the time when a Young Life leader took the time to reach out and enter their world.
