Description

Young Life, a non-denominational faith-based non-profit organization founded in 1941, reaches out to teenagers in need from diverse communities throughout the country as well as through international programs. Through caring relationships with mentors and group activities, young people find a safe haven to have fun and blow off steam as well as consider issues of faith and values. All teenagers are accepted and welcome regardless of religious beliefs. YoungLives, a special mentoring program of Young Life for teenage mothers and pregnant girls was launched in the New York Metro Region in 2003. Currently, there are chapters in Norwalk, Bridgeport and Danbury, CT, Port Chester, NY and Plainfield, NJ, with chapters in development throughout the region, including New York City. YoungLives is funded solely through private donations from individuals, churches and foundations. No government funding is solicited.
