"Young Life has impacted our whole family. Our teenagers are mentored, loved, and supported in their desire to live for Jesus. My husband and I are blessed each week by hosting Campaigners. Getting to have a house full of students and leaders who are all pursuing a closer relationship with Jesus encourages us and puts smiles on our faces each week."

- Dawn Palsgrove (West Chester East, Sender Mom)


Helping Staff and Volunteer Leaders

Reach Kids in Our Area

Penny Gerrard


We have a role for every adult in a community who gets excited about adolescents hearing of God's love for them.
When you're on committee, you're also becoming a part of a community of dynamic staff, leaders and other adult supporters. In fact, you'll end up with a front row seat for watching God work in the lives of kids.


Prayer team — we entrust our success to the One we so passionately tell kids about, so if you have the desire to pray for us and with us, we are grateful.

Event support — planning and executing fundraisers and informational meetings, from banquets to golf events.

Helping with financial support — local areas are financially supported almost exclusively by local families, businesses and churches, so we need help finding those people, engaging them, and thanking them.

Leader care — whether it is making them a meal or praying with them, we want our leaders working with kids to know they've got a team cheering for them.

Community relations — when the right people know the right things about Young Life -- from pastors to principals to parents and coaches -- the mission takes root and grows.
