What is Committee?

Each local area has a 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 committee, comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders, provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.

Ask your area staff person for a local list, and feel free to call these folks with your questions at any time.



Committee is the adult foundation for Young Life in the local area. Oftentimes, new Young Life clubs blossom out of community interest and awareness created by the committee. We are currently looking for additional adult committee members and parent support team members.

We also welcome and encourage involvement from Young Life alumni to serve on the area committee, for they bring knowledge and enthusiasm from their Young Life experiences.
