​Young Life Chicago-Northside Committee​

"It takes the combined muscle of donors, committee, volunteer leaders and staff to tackle the tremendous task of getting kids to Jesus Christ. Without faithful folks serving on Young Life committees across the country and around the world, we would stumble badly in our efforts to carry kids to Jesus."
 
-Denny Ryberg, Young Life President​

What Is Committee?

Each local area has a committee of adults who believes in the mission of Young Life: to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. This is our crazy and passionate team that leads Young Life Chicago-Northside!
Effective committees are the lifeline for Young Life in the local area. Young Life begins in new areas because of adults who share Young Life's vision and want to make a difference in the lives of kids in their community.

Young Life is sustained by adults serving on Committee -they are the unseen foundation behind any successful Young Life area. 

The Committee, comprised of parents, alumni, and civic leaders, provides a foundation of financial, administrative, spiritual and moral support for the local Young Life team.  We also welcome the involvement of adult Young Life alumni, whose enthusiasm about their Young Life experiences is valuable to a committee.

A Committee's purpose is to share responsibility for the ministry with the local Young Life staff.

Roles include:

  • Prayer team
  • Finances and fundraising team
  • Leader and Staff Care team
  • Benefit/Alumni Events team
