Sioux Falls Younglife
Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I love it when I hear of people here in Sioux Falls doing good and helping out. That's what a group is doing here in town. The name of the organization is Younglife.
Younglife is reaching out to local middle school ages students as well as high school age young adults.
A co-worker here at the radio station brought this to me. She said, 'you should do a story about this.' I'm glad she mentioned it. It looks pretty cool!
So, I did a little looking. Here's what it says on their website.
Young Life Leaders reach out to teenagers with an extended hand in the hope of establishing friendships. Leaders go wherever kids are - at theschool cafeteria, the mall, local concerts, the edge of football practice, local movie theatres , or a school play. They understand that being consistently present is the first step to earning a teenagers trust; all in all an opportunity to share the love of God.
Young Life staff and volunteers are adults who care deeply about kids. These leaders journey alongside both high school and middle school kids through the triumphs, joys, heart-aches, and setbacks of adolescence. It’s in the day-to-day that leaders demonstrate God’s faithfulness through consistent love toward their teenage friends regardless of their choices, trials, and struggles.
