Young Life in Centre County

Young Life, founded in 1941, starts with caring adults who believe every kid has the right to know the truth about Jesus and the love he has for them. Today Young Life is in all 50 states and in over 103 countries! This year Young Life is celebrating its 51st anniversary of impacting the lives of kids in Centre County!! Over the years, hundreds of leaders have given countless hours to invest in thousands of kids' lives. We would love to show you the life changing and generational transforming ways that God has worked through the ministry of Young Life in Centre County. For more information about Centre County Young Life or how you can see the ministry in action, please contact the Centre County Young Life Office at (814)251-4818 or chrisrussellYL@gmail.com

Young Life thinks the world of kids here in Centre County.  We believe that they deserve to know the truth about a God who is crazy about them. We are thankful for the privilage of steping into a world of kids, who more than anything want to experience "full life", only to earn the right to tell them about a God who offers them that and SO much more! Thanks for visiting our website!

Thank You Churches
Young Life is about the love of Jesus, manifested through the time and energy of a caring adult, stepping into the world of hurting kids. These kids, more than anything crave a life that's real, fulfilling, that doesn't disappoint, or shame them. They crave the full life that they were created for! In Young Life we have the privilege of introducing kids to Jesus, and walking alongside them as they grow in their faith. But we are only one part of the greater body of the Church here in State College, a greater body that is doing everything it can to make Happy Valley look more and more like the Kingdom of Heaven! We want to take this time to thank all of the local churches who continue to come alongside our Young Life Community, and in particular Calvary Church for all they do to enable our leaders and friends to love Jesus and love kids so well. God is using so many of our local churches to do amazing things in the lives of so many here our community, and Young Life is humbled to be a part of it! Thank you!​
