Young Life

Young Life is a world-class organization for adolescents. Since its founding in 1941, Young Life has been out there in the world of kids, meeting them where they are, accepting them as they are with a vision for who they can become. 

Young Life Little Traverse Bay launched in 2011 and is currently serving the communities of Petoskey, Charlevoix, and Harbor Springs. Our staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them -- fun, adventure, friendship, and a sense of significance. Kids' lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, and they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning, and purpose.​​​​​​​​
