What is Committee?

Each local area has a committee of adults who believes in the mission of Young Life: to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. You'll find adults from all different backgrounds, careers and churches, including lots of moms and dads who care about kids.

The committee, comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders, provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.

Ask your area staff person for a local list, and feel free to call these folks with your questions at any time.

Committee

 

An Essential Foundation

Committee is the foundation for Young Life in a local area. Oftentimes, new Young Life clubs start because of the interest and awareness created by the committee. We also welcome the involvement of adult Young Life alumni, whose enthusiasm about their Young Life experiences is valuable to a committee.

A Role Made For You

We have a role for every adult in a community who gets excited about adolescents hearing of God's love for them.

While the needs of every community are different, many staff are looking for adults to serve in ways like:
  • Prayer team -- we entrust our success to the One we so passionately tell kids about, so if you have the desire to pray for us and with us, we are grateful.
  • Event support -- planning and executing fundraisers and informational meetings, from banquets to barbecues, from golf events to skeet shoots.  
  • Local areas are financially supported almost exclusively by local families, businesses, and churches, so we need help finding those people, engaging them and thanking them.
  • Leader care -- whether it is making them a meal or praying with them, we want our leaders working with kids to know they've got a team cheering them on.
  • Community relations -- when the right people know the right things about Young Life -- from pastors to principals to parents -- the mission takes root and grows.
  • Logistical support -- stuffing envelopes, data entry, accounting help, newsletter writing -- you name it, we could use your skills!
This is just scratching the surface. And if you don't have the time for a formal committee role, we also need helpers we call the "ministry support team" to play other parts in this effort.

Joining A Team

When you're on committee, you're also becoming a part of a community of dynamic staff, leaders and other adult supporters. In fact, you'll end up with a front row seat for watching God work in the lives of kids.
