TEAM YOUNG LIFE


If you want to help, but can only commit to small amounts at a time, this is a great place for you. Team YL volunteers help out in lots of ways that cater to the volunteer's specific gifts, talents, and interests. Team YL members can be anyone of nearly any age that is willing and able to help.

Here are some ways that TEAM YL members can make a great contribution...
 
 
Prayer Support

Young Life needs people praying! We believe in God's power and ability to work through intercession of prayer. We also believe that the Enemy would like nothing more than for us to fail at our mission of winning kids to Christ. We need prayer warriors dedicated to praying daily for the schools, kids, leaders, and all aspects of our ministry's health.
  
Ministry Assistance

There is a lot of work that is done "behind the scenes" to help ensure our programs run smoothly, and leaders and kids are well cared for.
Here are some very tangible ways to directly assist our programs:
  • Provide a meal - Most of our programs offer food and refreshments. We also prepare meals for our leadership meetings. 
  • Babysitting - Our YoungLives ministry to teen moms is always looking for help holding babies while their Club is going on, and during their week of summer camp. It is also helpful to have free childcare for our leaders who have young kids during meeting times.
  • Be a 'Camp Buddy' - Our Capernaum ministry to kids with special needs loves when friends join them to help out for their week at summer camp.
  • Provide a place of retreat - It is a blessing to our staff and leaders when someone offers to let us use their lake house or ranch to get away for a weekend leader retreat.
  • Adopt-a-leader - This is mostly to care for our college age leaders who give so much. You can write them encouraging notes, have them over for dinner, or bake them some cookies...whatever you can do that remind them of how much they are loved and appreciated.
 
Special Projects

There are always random responsibilities where we can use help. For example
  • Registration at the Golf Tournament
  • Table Host for the Fundraising Banquet
  • Helping decorate, set up, clean up for events
  • Making connections for fun activities with kids and leaders
  • Designing website and creative print work communications
  • Filming and editing audio/video communications for Club and events
 
Serve on a Specific Event Committee

Perhaps you have seasons of availability where you would like to be on the team that helps plan out our events. Our two largest community events are our annual Golf Tournament and Fundraising Banquet. We need some organized and creative people to make these events spectacular. 
 
Office Assistance

Maybe you have the gift of administration and enjoy creating spreadsheets, or you like to sit and stuff envelopes while you talk with your friends. There are certain times where our staff could really benefit from the expertise of those more left-brained than us.
 
Financial Support

Young Life is 100% funded from with in our local community. The truth is that it costs money to do ministry, and the more regular our financial assistance is, the more time our staff can spend working with direct ministry.  Your financial gifts help us meet our budget, which includes items such as camp scholarships, club and activity expenses, office supplies, leader training, staff salaries, and more.  Whether you would like recognition for your company through an event sponsorship, or you just have a desire to give what you can to support the earnest work of this mission, you can learn more about our budget and our needs by visiting our donor page or contacting our office.
 
Help Get Something Started

While we already have vibrant ministry with teams of leaders focused on several schools, there are still areas in Carrollton, Hebron, and The Colony that are not being impacted with the love and message of Jesus Christ through Young Life. Contact the Young Life office for more information if you would like to see Young Life reach out to a school near you.
