Young Life of Canada – http://www.younglife.ca
Since Young Life began in Canada in 1954, its staff and volunteers have cared enough to leave the comfort of their adult worlds and enter the arena of high school and junior high school life. These trained Young Life leaders are committed to friendships with kids – no strings attached. They go where kids are and spend time in their world playing road hockey, going to the mall, watching a basketball game, or heading to the ski hill. Young Life leaders build bridges of friendship in order to “earn the right to be heard.” We are all about communicating God’s love and the Christian message to kids in terms they can understand. Young Life values and respects all young people, and welcomes all teenagers, both junior and senior high, regardless of race or religious beliefs.
With staff in over 40 communities throughout BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and southern Ontario, Young Life of Canada employs more than 120 staff, and works with over 500 volunteers.
