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.





An Essential Foundation

Committee is the foundation for Young Life in a local area. 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.

Volunteer leaders are absolutely vital to the mission of Young Life and allows lives to be changed.

Leaders show up where kids are in an attempt to enter into their world and share Jesus with them. Please contact Travis Bowen at 507-995-1741 or email
Join a Community Support Team:
Our desire is for more local people to be involved and introduced to Young Life, and for there to be greater exposure within the community. Each school needs a support team made up of adults who advocate for Young Life and help by providing prayer & support to the leaders. The support team communicates to expand community awareness and parent support in the schools, and may volunteer to provide supplies or manpower when needed for YL events and weekly clubs. Please contact Travis Bowen at 507-995-1741 or email
Join our Adult Committee:
Members of the committee are adults who are committed to providing every kid in their community the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ in terms they can understand. Committee members pray for Young Life, promote the ministry in the community, care for the local staff and volunteer leaders, as well as ensure the financial health of the ministry.  Please contact Rhonda Else at 507-380-5136 or
