Young Life is making a difference in teens' lives.

Making An Impact


Young Life is active in 5 high schools in the Greater Lafayette area including Jefferson High School, West Lafayette Junior-Senior High School, Harrison High School, McCutcheon High School and Oakland High School.  We are also active in Battleground Middle School and Tecumseh Junior High as well as in other middle schools in the area. 

What is a Young Life Leader?

Young Life is not a facility-based ministry--we don't ask teens to come to us.  Leaders go to them, wherever they may be.  It's a principle modeled by Christ and practiced for more than 60 years by Young Life & WyldLife Leaders as they show up at sports practices, games, local hangouts, or meet for ice cream just to get to know teens. 
Leaders are committed to being involved with teens' lives -- from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what's important to them. It's all about building relationships and gaining their trust and friendship. Our Leaders help teens consider the direction of their lives, and offer them guidance and hope for their future.
Young Life is not officially connected to any particular church, but we believe church is a very important part of nurturing a relationship with Christ.  Our staff and Leaders are committed followers of Jesus Christ and come from many denominations, and encourage teens to become involved in the local church of their choosing.
All Young Life & WyldLife Leaders are carefully screened to ensure that they are men and women of integrity, and all volunteers are trained and supervised by staff members.
