2. Volunteer in a Local Area

Volunteer leaders are absolutely vital to the mission of Young Life. It is their involvement that allows lives to be changed. Young Life volunteer leaders participate in a full range of activities that help them build these significant relationships with kids. Each Young Life area has a different process for becoming a Young Life leader. If you are interested in volunteering for Young Life, contact us and we'll help you get connected to one of our local areas.

3. Join a Local Committee

Members of a Young Life Committee are adults who are committed to providing every kid in their community the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ in terms they can understand. Committee members pray for Young Life, promote the ministry in the community, care for the local staff and volunteer leaders, as well as ensure the financial health of the ministry. Contact us for more information about a committee near you.

4. Be an Adult Guest

Many adults are introduced to Young Life when they visit a Young Life Camp. Adult guest hosts are needed to host small groups of these adults who are new to Young Life and/or the camp experience. They stay in a beautiful adult guest lodge and help other adult guests get to know Young Life. Doctors and nurses are also needed at camps during the summer to provide care to campers, staff and volunteer leaders. Contact us to learn more about getting involved at a Young Life camp​.

5. Be a Donor

Financial gifts are essential to Young Life because regional and area staff are responsible for raising 100 percent of their budgets, which mainly include staff salaries and benefits, administrative costs and programming costs. As a donor to Young Life, you can specify how you want your money to be used — program expenses, funding a yearly event such as a banquet, sending a teenager to camp (campership), purchasing a much-needed van, you name it!
