OUR SPRING 2016 YOUNG LIFE LEADER TEAM!
Young Life starts with someone like you becoming friends with a kid. We spend hours with high school & junior high students, listening to their stories and learning what's important to them, because kids' lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, and share with them the truth about God's love; careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised -- all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.
A leader can be anyone...but around Champaign County, usually leaders are University of Illinois or Parkland students. We seek to become a missional community of friends following Jesus and loving kids. When you're a leader, you're joining a community of dynamic staff, leaders and committee. It's not uncommon for leaders to say that they get more out of being a leader than what they give.
We can promise...leading Young Life can be one of the most challenging, but also one of the most fulfilling & life-giving parts of your college experience. Will you join us?
There's a place for you here...
We know there are lots of great things to be a part of on campus. Being a Young Life leader isn't just another extra-curricular: being part of mission to kids is a way of doing life. You can go Greek, play a sport, or be involved in another organization; don't miss out on being a YL leader because you are worried about the time commitment. Dive in, and see where God takes you.
