Making An Impact


Leaders are committed to being involved with teens’ lives -- from supporting them at school, to listening to them talk about what's important to them. Our leaders help young adults consider the direction of their lives and offer hope for the future. Our leaders help kids discover that their lives have purpose and meaning--and that they are not defined by their disability.

We believe that in order to reach the teen population we must go where they go and enter their world. Every week in the San Jose area, Capernaum staff and volunteers can be found at school events, birthday parties, pizza/movie nights, BBQs and clubs providing teens with much need support and direction.

I know that when I go to Club I can trust my Young Life leaders to help me when I am going through hard times. I didn't know how much my Young Life leaders cared about me or how much God loved me till I started going to Young Life.
