Multicultural/Urban Young Life

Thirty teens from our Multicultural Young Life program attended Summer Camp at Timber Wolf Lake in July!

Help us spread the word to our friends and family in the City of Flint and Beecher! They HAVE TO COME AND JOIN THE FUN!

Dates and locations for all meetings will be posted starting in September! 

Genesee County's Multicultural/Urban Young Life is our ministry serving kids of color and kids from under-resourced communities. Many of these kids often feel misunderstood and neglected and are being raised in environments where hope for the future is sometimes limited.

​Multicultural/Urban Young Life leaders identify with the community they serve and adapt ministry work to fit the needs of the kids. Multicultural camp weeks are also a crucial part of this unique Young Life ministry. From small, rural communities to the heart of the inner city, Young Life seeks to bridge the gap and reach this generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Serving
Is God calling you to minister full time to this population of teenagers? Prayerfully consider volunteering with our Multicultural staff in Genesee County. Our volunteer leaders spend time each week getting to know kids on their turf. Because kids don't care how much you know till they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, believing in who they can be. And because some of these kids don’t often have the basics of life, Multicultural Young Life needs folks who can provide transportation to and from club and, sometimes, food before or after club.
Club
What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for thousands of kids every week? 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.
Camp
Kids consistently tell us that Young Life 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?
Campaigners
Campaigners (a name that points back to the early days when Young Life was known as “The Young Life Campaign”) is a weekly meeting for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. We consistently see kids’ lives changed in the process as they encounter Jesus Christ. Young Life leaders also encourage these kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation.
Leadership Opportunities
High school kids may be selected for monthlong sessions during the summer to serve at Young Life camps as part of the work crew. They help make sure camp is an unforgettable experience for the campers by doing things like serving meals, washing dishes, doing yard work, folding laundry and cleaning cabins. They also delve deeper into their own faith and serve alongside other kids from all around the country and the world.

Young Life leaders may consider a high school kid a potential leader for WyldLife, the ministry to middle school kids. As a WyldLife leader, they’ll build friendships with middle school kids and go to WyldLife events and camp.

Under the direction of their leader, Campaigner kids are often asked to take on a leadership role within their own Young Life club.

Giving
Giving of your time is crucial, but financial resources are what keep Young Life's Multicultural ministry in the lives of kids who need Jesus Christ. Multicultural Young Life needs the support of those willing to give financially, as well as those who want to serve on the area's Young Life of Genesee County's Committee and represent the interests of Multicultural Young Life in the Flint area.
