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

We are committed to introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grown in their faith. Young Life also aims to establish and maintain a presence at all high schools and middle schools in the local area.


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.

Camp Scholarship

Young Life camping involves high adventure, lots of fun, great food and allows for kids to get away from the pressures of everyday life. While having fun with friends and their Young Life leaders, kids will get to hear the message of God's love in terms they can understand.

This summer, YL Manatee County will be taking 6 trips across all of our ministries (Young Life, WyldLife, Capernaum, and YoungLives). We have many kids hesitating to sign up due to the cost of camp. We never want money to be the reason a kid does not experience YL Camp. We rely on the generosity of this community to help fill this need.
