Parents and Community

Even though Young Life is especially for kids, parents and other adults in the community are important to Young Life. Adults can support Young Life in a variety of ways — by becoming a volunteer leader or committee member, by attending a Young Life fund-raising event, by hosting Young Life or by simply telling others in the community about this ministry and its commitment to kids. We also have an "AMT" (Adult Ministry Team) which support each of our volunteer teams.  If you are interested in serving in this way, please contact Dee Hopkins ( or Suzanne Woodward (​​).

Keeping Kids Safe

An important part of our committment to kids is how we keep kids safe. Our staff and volunteer leaders know they are responsible for modeling lives of hope and integrity. Young Life's Human Resources department has developed missionwide policies and procedures to ensure that kids are protected when they are with Young Life staff and/or leaders as well as when kids are part of Young Life sponsored activities.
We hope you will decide that you were made to get involved. To learn more, contact your local Young Life office, visit or call: 877-438-9572.
