High School Young Life

Young Life Leaders have been in the world of high school kids on Chicago’s North side since the 1970's! Our current work is focused primarily with students who attend Lake View and Lane Tech High Schools, but we draw students from high schools across the North side.

Throughout the week, you will find Young Life Leaders spending time in the world of teens - on their turf - building relationships, providing a listening ear, and having fun together.


We meet every Monday, providing a community for all high schoolers to learn, grow, and have fun!  Every week is a fresh activity, including our tried and true club and campaigners, but also including field trip adventures and community service outings. No matter the event, teens hear a message about life and faith from a trusted Young Life Leader and then process this with a Leader and small group of peers.  It’s always an action-packed night, all designed for high schoolers to feel loved, empowered, and experience God’s love and purpose for them.  We end the night at 7:30pm and provide safe transportation home to anyone that requests a ride.


We currently meet on Mondays at Resurrection Covenant Church (3901 N Marshfield Ave) in the Lakeview neighborhood, one block from Lake View High School


In addition to our weekly after school club, we also provide opportunities for individual mentoring, school year and summer camps, leadership development programs, and more. All high school students that live or go to school on the North side are welcome to join us!
