Parents and Community

Even though Young Life is especially for kids, parents and other adults in the community are important to Young Life. Adults can support Young Life in a variety of ways — by becoming a volunteer leader or committee member, by attending a Young Life fund-raising event, by hosting Young Life or by simply telling others in the community about Young Life and its commitment to kids.  Please view the committee​ page for more information on how you can help Young Life in Lincoln.

Keeping Kids Safe

An important part of our committment to kids is how we keep kids safe. Our staff and volunteer leaders know they are responsible for modeling lives of hope and integrity.Young Life's Human Resources department has developed missionwide policies and procedures to ensure that kids are protected when they are with Young Life staff and/or leaders as well as when kids are part of Young Life's sponsored activities.

Does my child have to be a Christian to attend YL?
Your child doesn’t have to be a Christian or believe in God to attend Young Life. At Young Life, kids will definitely hear talk about Jesus and the Christian faith and will be encouraged to think about what all that means for them. But they never have to be a Christian to attend or become a Christian to stay. We want all kids to feel free to be curious, even skeptical. We want them to check it all out, ask questions and have fun.
How do I start a Young Life or WyldLife Club at my child’s school?
A new ministry always begins with prayer. Assemble a group of like-minded men and women who care about young people and begin to pray that God will open the door to ministry at your child’s school. In addition to prayer, contact the Lincoln Young Life area director who will be able to walk with you toward having Young Life or WyldLife in your child's school.
