Because teen moms don’t care how much you know till they know how much you care, YoungLives leaders show they care by going where teen moms are, meeting them as they are, believing in who they can be. Within YoungLives we call the persistent going out into the world of teen moms “contact work.” But they just call it friendship.
Teem moms consistently tell us that YoungLives Camp is the best week of their life. That’s a rousing (and unsolicited) endorsement! But how else would you describe a week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and where you experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told?
What is it about YoungLives Club that makes it the best night of the week for teen moms on a school night? We like to think of it as a party with a purpose. It’s controlled chaos that’s almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. And before the party ends, we share a simple message about God’s love for them. After all, that’s what the celebration is all about.
Connect (also known as Bible Study) meets 3 times per month and is a gathering for teens who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. We invite teen moms to actively follow Jesus Christ — and we’re with them for the long haul to help them take those steps of faith with unconditional love. Along the way, we encourage kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation
