Who We Are

Young Life has a long history of working with Kids ... we’ve been working with kids for over 70 years. We have ministries in all 50 states and in another 90 countries. We get to bring the skills and resources that we’ve learned and that we’ve trained in to care about kids specifically in New York City.

We get the awesome privilege to “do” life with kids — and they get to see how believers respond with Jesus in every circumstance.

​Meet Carolyn - A Young Life Leader

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. Leaders faithfully engage kids in after-school programs in the Harlem, hang out with teenagers at a mall in Manhattan, or play pick-up basketball with at-risk youth in Queens. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks
When caring adults come alongside sharing God's love with them, kids' lives are dramatically changed.
