What is The Board? 

  Each local area has a board (committee) of adults who  believes in the mission of Young Life: to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. 

  You'll find adults from all different backgrounds, careers and churches, including lots of moms and dads who care about kids.

  The board, comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders, provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.​​​​


 An Essential Foundation

  The Board is the foundation for Young Life in a local area. Oftentimes, new Young Life clubs start because of the interest and awareness created by the board. We also welcome the involvement of adult Young Life alumni, whose enthusiasm about their Young Life experiences is valuable to a board. 

  Even though Young Life is especially for kids, parents and other adults in the community are important to Young Life. Adults can support Young Life in a variety of ways— by becoming a volunteer leader or committee member, by attending a Young Life fund-raising event, by hosting Young Life or by simply telling others in the community about Young Life and it's commitment to kids.
