Kids have a lot of choices to make. They choose friends, lab partners, sports to play and prom dates. They can also face other decisions that are harder for teenagers to make – like deciding whether to live with mom or dad, if they’re going to drink alcohol with their friends or how their life can have purpose and direction.
As they face these choices, Young Life is rooting for teenagers. Young Life leaders are caring adults who know that adolescence is an unpredictable time. No matter which way life goes for teenagers, leaders are always ready to congratulate or console, encourage or offer advice. They are also experts in having fun and showing kids the joyful side of life. Leaders know kids well and love being involved in their lives, whether that means attending every soccer game of the season or being available when life feels too heavy to carry alone.
Teenagers mean the world to Young Life leaders, who are excited for kids to know how loved, important and valuable they are. Through these relationships, Young Life club, camp and Campaigners, teenagers learn that life can be fulfilling and that tough choices of adolescence don’t have to be faced alone. Leaders also have opportunities to tell kids who their biggest fan of all is – a loving Creator who desires for teenagers to know He cares about them. HE has chosen them!
