Young Life Syracuse

"Young Life is an experience of fun, adventure, grace and truth."

Young Life is a world-class organization for adolescents. Our staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them -- fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about the good news of Jesus and His love for them. 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.

30 Years of YL Syracuse

30 Years Young

Young Life Syracuse East turns 30 this upcoming year! We would not exist without the support of donors throughout our communities from Jamesville-Dewitt to Fayetteville-Manlius and from Cazenovia to Chittenango. Together we have been able to build relationships with thousands of middle school, high school, and college students: inviting them to follow Christ, caring for them regardless of their response, and changing lives in the process.

Support Young Life

For our 30th anniversary, we are looking for 30 new (or increased) monthly donors at $30+/month. YL is locally funded and cannot happen without individuals and organizations in the area that want to see changed lives of teenagers. To ensure YL is here in Syracuse East for another 30 years, please consider how you can partner with us. Online giving is a safe and efficient way to become a monthly donor for our local area (NY24). 

Staff and volunteer leaders also need spiritual encouragement, prayer, hosts for club/campaigners/WyldLife, help with special events, and active community support - please talk to a committee or staff member to learn more or get involved.
