What is Young Life?

If you love the experience of Laity Lodge, you’ll absolutely love Young Life. LLYC is in so many ways modeled directly after the ministry mindset of Young Life—seeking to show the love of Christ to junior high and high school students through relationships with college and career-aged leaders who seek to earn the right to be heard through being a part of students lives.

Young Life (YL) seeks to carry the message of Jesus Christ into that tumultuous tide and points teenagers toward life as they were created to live it. Since 1941, the dynamic that has characterized Young Life is its commitment to relationships. Young Life leaders meeting kids on their turf in the interest of friendship. As leaders get to know teenagers, they are able to share the love of Jesus Christ through platforms like Young Life club, Campaigners, and trips to camp.

You can go here to find a Young Life near you.

What is WyldLife?

WyldLife, is the junior high version of Young Life!

Junior high is a time when kids make important decisions about who they are and what they believe. And so WyldLife leaders—who range from spiritually mature high school and college students to moms, dads, and retirees—consider it a privilege to be involved in their lives. We seek to model and express God’s love to our young friends by learning their names, hearing their stories, and honoring their God-given desire for a life of fun, adventure, and purpose.
