  • Mentoring

  • Working on a committee

  • Hospitality – Help us feed our Moms

  • Becoming a childcare volunteer

  • Offering financial support



Mentoring forms the heart of YoungLives. Mentors build relationships with teen moms, offering guidance in matters of faith, parenting and self-worth. This investment of time and heart has empowered positive, sustainable change in the lives of these beautiful families for more than 20 years. Mentors are required to have a relationship with Jesus, spend 2-3 hours per week with teen moms and their babies on weeks we don’t meet for Club or Campaigners, come to club once a month, come to Campaigners once a month, attend mentor meetings once a month, and provide transportation to and from YoungLives events. Additionally, a mentor can choose to attend a monthly parenting class held in the high schools we reach out to.

Committee Member

The committee’s purpose is for its’ members to share ownership of the ministry with the YoungLives local staff and volunteer leaders. The committee is the foundation for a successful ministry as each member commits to praying, strategizing, funding, evaluating, networking, and growing the ministry alongside the local staff and volunteer leaders. There are varying levels of committee membership. Some committee members will attend meetings, support the ministry financially in some capacity, attend a ministry event once a year, help put on the spring fundraiser and help within their specific area of committee membership.

Food/Supply Donations

One of the ways we get to display the extravagant care and provision of Christ to our teen mom friends is by helping to provide for their physical needs. From providing a snack for one of our parenting classes in the high schools or bible studies to helping us stock our YoungLives store with bottles, diapers, etc., we are always looking for volunteers who feel passionate about helping us love our girls in this way. We take gently used donations of certain items, click here for a list.

Childcare Volunteer

We are always looking for volunteers who get excited about holding babies, because, man, do we have a lot of babies for you to hold! Our childcare workers are a key component of our ministry, allowing us to focus on presenting a fun, memorable experience for our girls that invites them to know Jesus deeper. We are looking for childcare volunteers to serve at club, bible studies, our spring overnight and we take a handful of childcare workers to camp with us for one week during the summer.
