Young Life was founded in 1941 and currently has about 7,800 ministries in over 100 countries, reaching more than 2.4 million kids annually. Hollywood Young Life has been investing in adolescents since 2005.
The Hollywood YL staff and volunteer leaders focus on life skills and discipleship through one on one mentoring, small group gatherings, and weekly outreach programs with middle school and high school students. Their vision is for leaders to cultivate long-lasting relationships with adolescents, introduce them to Jesus, and help them grow in their faith. HYL has multiple weekly afterschool and lunchtime clubs where students and leaders play games, eat together, and leaders share about the person of Jesus. They also hold weekly Bible studies. During the summer and winter, they take students camping, where relationships with Christ often deepen and grow.
