Get Involved With the Young Life Small Town/Rural Initiative


If you have a passion for helping teenagers, you can be involved with Young Life’s Small Town/Rural ministry in a variety of ways. We invite you to serve
as a:

Volunteer Leader — Are you willing to get “silly” for the sake of the Gospel? Leaders build relationships with teenagers and earn “the right to be heard.” You can model the love of Jesus Christ by spending time with kids at weekly club meetings, special events and camp. Contact your local Young Life office for information on how to get involved.

Teacher Staff — In small towns, teachers are greatly valued as people who can make a significant impact as a volunteer or part-time staff member. Learn more.

Committee Member — If your strengths are more along the lines of vision-casting and administration, you can help develop the plans and polices that will enable the ministry to run effectively and grow.

Prayer Partner — Dedicated prayer partners are needed to help Young Life’s Small Town/Rural ministry grow and stay focused on reaching every kid for Christ.

Donor — Young Life depends on donor gifts to keep the ministry running. Your commitment as a financial supporter will guarantee countless teenagers receive the support and guidance they need while learning about God’s love for them. Contact your local Young Life office for more information. ​​
