About Us

Welcome to The Young Life Leader Blog! Started in 2010 to encourage and equip Young Life leaders around the globe, you can now find over 1500 unique posts varying between practical club tips, encouraging stories, and creative contact work ideas. With over 200 different authors (and growing), our hope is that this site can be a place where leaders like you can share helpful and encouraging stories and ideas.

You can also follow along on the Alongside: Young Life leaders Facebook group, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

You can also send us an old-fashioned email if you have a question or an idea or post you think other leaders could benefit from!

Please feel free to share the site with other leaders in your area.
