– About Young Life
“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.
Young Life leaders log many hours with kids in every part of our community — where they are, as they are. Leaders faithfully attend football practices at Yelm High School, mingle with teenagers at Scotty B’s and play Capture the Flag or shoot hoops after school. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence,” quoting their website.
