Young Life thinks the world of kids. We believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Young Life leaders are caring adults who come sharing hope as well as fun, meaningful and lasting friendships. Whether it's at club, campaigners or camp, teenagers will have a blast laughing, trying new things and being with their friends.

Nashville Mission Statement

Walking toward opportunities that God presents and embracing the unique nature of Nashville we go where kids are and introduce them to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. 


Since 1941 Young Life has been making a difference in the lives of teenagers. Young Life is active in all 50 states and more than 76 foreign countries, reaching an estimated 1.5 million teenagers annually.
