Adults

Young Life isn’t just for kids!  There are many ways for adults to be involved.  Contact us if you are interested in serving in any of these capacities:

Support Team Member

Members of a Young Life Support Team are adults who are committed to providing every kid in their community the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ in terms they can understand. Support Team members pray for Young Life, promote the ministry in the community, care for the local staff and volunteer leaders, as well as ensure the financial health of the ministry.

Giving

Financial gifts are essential to Young Life because 100 percent of area budgets are raised locally.  Budgets mainly include staff salaries and benefits, administrative costs and programming costs.

As a donor to Young Life you can specify how you want your money to be used — program expenses, funding a yearly event such as a banquet, sending a teenager to camp (campership), purchasing a much-needed van, etc. Or you can allow us to use the money where they see the greatest need.

Volunteer Leader

Volunteer leaders are absolutely vital to the mission of Young Life and it isn’t just for college students. It is the involvement of leaders that allows lives to be changed. Young Life volunteer leaders participate in a full range of activities that help them build these significant relationships with kids. If you are an adult who has a heart for teenage kids to know Jesus and you feel called to be on the front lines, we want you to be a Young Life leader. We are looking for adults of all ages, careers, church denominations, and races.

Adult Guest

Spend a week at one of our beautiful adult guest lodges and see camp in action. You will be hosted by an individual, or couple, who will explain the ministry philosophy behind camp activities and ensure you are comfortable throughout your stay. The best part is, during the week, you will have the opportunity to be a “big kid” and enjoy all the same programs the campers do. Watch this promotional video to get a glimpse of the adult guest experience.

Camp Physician

Each year, more than 150 doctors and their families spend a week at camp attending to the medical needs of campers. Physicians serve at camp by being available to handle minor medical needs and discerning those which need treatment from local clinics or hospitals. The physician and his or her family attend camp at no cost and are encouraged to participate in all activities and enjoy the same programs that the campers do.
