Young Life in the New York metro area is a new and growing ministry. Young Life seeks to transform lives by generating sincere friendships with teenagers and providing them weekly events, first-class adventures and experiences where they can relax, laugh, hear the Gospel presented in a compelling way. Students also learn the skills, assets, and attitudes that will help them reach their God-given potential in life.
