In Young Life, we have the privilege of extending Jesus Christ’s love to kids as they are, where they are. For high school and middle school girls who are expecting or are raising a child on their own, that love takes the form of a program called YoungLives.
Treating each mom and her child or children with unconditional love and respect, YoungLives in New York City offers teen moms in Harlem the relief from the isolation and struggle of their daily lives and hope for the future. YoungLives mentors provide friendship, parenting advice and help meeting the practical demands of raising a child. At YoungLives club and camp, moms get to socialize and have fun while their babies get the best possible care.
YoungLives Club - Club is designed to provide a place for teen moms to come together to have fun, build friendships and hear a message about real life and God's love.
YoungLives Mentors - Mature Christian women are needed to provide teen moms with timely encouragement, guidance, and ongoing support through one-on-one mentoring.
YoungLives Parenting Support Group - Once a month, YoungLives leaders host a support group for parenting teen moms to offer best practices information, prayer, and encouragement.
Committee - YoungLives committee members serve as a support structure to help the ministry thrive, such as providing resources as prayer, care for volunteers and staff, and fundraising.
