Young Life Columbia

What we do:

Young Life Leaders enter the world of high school kids, focusing on what matters to them: fun, adventure, and friendship. Through these mentoring relationships, we help teenagers navigate the high school years, while sharing with them Jesus’ love.

Why we’re great:

Young Life is more than a meeting. We go to kids; we don’t ask them to come to us. We are in the stands at their football games and hanging out with them over coffee. We believe that kids don't care how much you know till they know how much you care.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

In 2016, Young Life had 55 local volunteer leaders who spent 18,000 hours mentoring teenagers from 8 Mid-MO high schools! We are investing significantly in the character development of individuals who will soon be the leaders of this community.
