Highland Park Young Life exists to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. 



What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for kids in Highland Park? We like to think of it as a party with a purpose. It's controlled chaos that's almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. And before the party ends, we share a simple message about God's love for them.



Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their lives. This summer kids from Highland Park will get to have the best week of their life at camp...will you be one of them?



Campaigners is a weekly meeting for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. Young Life leaders also encourage these kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation.

Loving kids regardless of their response. 

Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with an adult who is 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' 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 what their lives have great worth, meaning, and purpose. We believe in loving kids regardless of their response. 

Become a Volunteer Leader

Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. They're moms and dads, college students and working professionals, retirees and other compassionate adults who want God's best for kids. The diversity of our volunteers helps us make an eternal difference with all kinds of kids in all kinds of places. 

When you're a leader, you're also 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.
