Young Life

There are two main ways that college students can be involved in Young Life. College students make great Young Life leaders, and most Young Life areas are eager to nurture, train and include college students on their Young Life teams!

But Young Life also has a growing presence on college campuses for those students who are at a different place on their faith journey. It’s called Young Life College. Regardless of where students are in their religious beliefs, Young Life College offers them a community to be a part of where they can enjoy college and be loved for who they are. As caring adults venture with them, college students are nurtured, guided and encouraged to become young adults who are committed followers of Jesus Christ.

Meeting Place: Rice Library 0003
