A bit about us …. Who is Young Life?

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. We go to teenagers, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship to communicate God’s love and the Christian message in terms they can understand. With staff in over 40 communities throughout BC, Alberta, and southern Ontario, Young Life of Canada employs more than 120 staff, and works with over 500 volunteers.
