What is YoungLives?

More than 20 years ago, Young Life answered God’s call to run headfirst into the chaos of teenage motherhood with the hope of Jesus... and YoungLives was born.
  
YoungLives' vision and mission are the same as Young Life's. Our adolescent audience is focused on teen mothers who are pregnant or parenting. YoungLives does this by entering their world, modeling the unconditional love of Christ, and encouraging them to become the women and mothers God created them to be. Through Young Life’s time-tested methods and life-on-life mentoring, teen moms are empowered to make positive choices, set and achieve goals, and live a future rooted in Christ.

Mentoring 
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.
 
Club
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. 
  
Camp
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. ​
 
Discipleship 
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.
