On Saturday April 27, 2013 at the Shoreview Community Center, our own Julian, juggled the 2.8 mile Young Life Walk to help kids go to camp this summer. 100% of the money raised will help fund a Young Life student’s trip to either: Castaway Club in Detroit Lakes, MN, Crooked Creek Camp in Fraser, CO, or Mission Trip to Reynosa, Mexico.
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids around the world — where they are, as they are. Leaders faithfully attend football practices in the Minneapolis suburbs, mingle with teenagers at a mall in Stockholm and play pick-up soccer with former child-soldiers in Liberia. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
