Our local chapter of the national Young Liife group (Young Life HWY 507) held a dinner fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 9, catered by Yelm’s Casa Mia Restaurant.
The Yelm-area Young Life Chapter also named as new leader, Sarah Cooper. Young Life Hwy 507 operates The Coffee Place, across Yelm Ave. W. from Yelm Middle School, which pans to reopen in December.

Who is Young Life for?
“Everyone is welcome in Young Life! Our programs are custom made for kids throughout their adolescent years. Young Life is the name of our organization and is also the term we use for our program with high school students. We call our middle school program WyldLife. The initiative for college and university students is called Young Life College.
Young Lifes multicultural ministry, focused on kids in diverse cultural communities and those in economically-depressed areas, is arguably the largest of its kind in the United States. We refer to our ministry to kids with disabilities as Capernaum and to our work with teen moms as YoungLives. In a partnership with Military Community Youth Ministries, Young Life reaches military teens through a program called Club Beyond. The Small Towns initiative brings Young Life to communities of fewer than 25,000 people.”
