All you need to do is show up. Don’t know where to show up? Find Young Life near you. First, you’ll probably show up at “club.” Hopefully, you’ll laugh and feel a new kind of acceptance — meeting new friends and adult "leaders" -- without any strings attached.
Beyond club, you could go to Campaigners. Campaigners is designed for those interested in what they hear at club and want to explore who God is and what it means to have a relationship with Him.
Summer camp trips are a week of laughter, adrenaline, deep talks and beautiful scenery. At camp you learn more of what it means to live life to the fullest, because you do it every day when you’re at camp.
If you’ve been to Young Life camp, ask your Young Life leader about serving at a camp on work crew, which is comprised of high school kids who help run camp and do things like wait tables in the dining hall, help take care of the grounds, clean cabins or wash dishes. Sound like a chore? When you’re doing these things at camp, it’s a lot more fun because you’re with other high school kids from around the country. It will change your life.
Young Life Expeditions is a great way to serve people outside of the United States. One-week to three-month mission opportunities are available.
Another option is to become a WyldLife leader. Ask your leader about it. Being one means hanging out with middle school kids. It’s an awesome way to give back and impact other lives.
Your area/country may have even more ways to get involved. Ask your Young Life leader about it.
