Centre County Young Life

In Young Life we invite kids to follow Christ, care for them regardless of their response, and change lives in the process.
Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust, and consistency. ​ ​
We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.


Young Life is making a difference in the lives of kids around the world because we are supported by adults who care about kids in their community. For every talented Young Life staff person, there is a team of dedicated volunteer leaders which works directly with kids. In each community, the local "committee" — composed of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders — provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.​​​​​
