Young Life was founded in 1941 and currently has around 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 Young Life Hollywood staff and volunteer leaders focus on life skills and discipleship through one-on-one mentoring, small group gatherings, and weekly outreach programs with middle and high school students, young moms in the foster care system, and young adults. Their vision is for leaders to cultivate long-lasting relationships with adolescents, introduce them to Jesus, and help them grow in their faith.
Young Life Hollywood 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.
