Your Support is Crucial

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.

Our Vision

Throughout its 70+ year history, Young Life has been on a tireless mission to reach more and more teens with the Gospel.  Its ministry positively affects youth around the world as it reaches youth who are not otherwise reached by churches.  However, Young  Life has struggled to have a sustainable presence among low income, at risk youth in the U.S., and has especially struggled with reaching African-American teens.

In addition, Young Life understands that targeting at-risk youth means also helping them face issues that are different from and more pronounced than youth from middle-class families.  Young Life's view is that if it introduces a young person to Jesus Christ, but, for example, he does not graduate from high school, it has failed that young man.  It believes each youth has a God-given potential to become a productive, faith-filled citizen.

To meet these needs the Atlanta Project uses a distinctive approach that differs from the traditional Young Life strategy.  It will: 


  • Teach life skills (in addition to a Biblical perspective on life)
  • ​Finance the program differently by paying a stipend to existing youth workers to execute Young Life programming
  • Partner with other nonprofits with specialized capabilities to help at-risk youth





Your Support

We believe that in order to reach kids we must go where they go and enter their world. Every week in our local area, Young Life staff and volunteers can be found at school events and practices and at kids' favorite hangouts. In many cases, they are the only adult friends kids have in their lives. Our work could not be done without your support. We are grateful for your gift to Young Life. Thank you for all you do to help us reach generations of kids who desperately need to hear a message of hope.
