​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Hundreds of our teens are experiencing 
fun, adventure, friendship & 
a sense of significance in Genesee County
For most kids, however, Young Life is simply a person — a person who knows their name and sees something in them that others may not. It's a person who keeps showing up, cheering when things are good and listening when they aren't. It's a person who has followed Jesus Christ into the world of kids, inviting them to more fun, adventure and life than they can imagine. 

Young Life invites you to be that person.

Father Gregory Boyle to speak at May 9 Young Life Banquet!

Noting Jesuit Father Gregory Boyle’s boundlessly compassionate approach to changing the lives of young people, Young Life of Genesee County has invited the inspirational New York Times Bestselling author to keynote their annual banquet May 9th in hopes of igniting greater care and outreach to area youth.

Gregory Boyle, SJ, is Founder/Executive Director of Homeboy Industries and bestselling author of Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion. He will speak May 9, 6pm, at the Holiday Inn Gateway Center. The annual fundraising dinner will include a 5pm VIP Reception where sponsors will meet with Father Boyle personally (Sponsorships are available; see link below). 


Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles traces its roots to 1988, when Father Boyle was the pastor of the poorest parish in the city in a neighborhood with the highest concentration of gang activity. Today, Homeboy Industries is world renowned for training and employing former gang members in a range of social enterprises, as well as providing critical services to over 10,000 people who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life. Father Boyle is the author of the 2010 New York Times bestseller Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion. He is the subject of Academy Award Winner Freida Lee Mock’s 2012 documentary, G-Dog. He has received the California Peace Prize and has been inducted into the California Hall of Fame. In 2014, the White House named Father Boyle a Champion of Change. Most recently, Father Boyle was named 2016 Humanitarian of the Year by the James Beard Foundation.


On May 10, Father Boyle will be meeting, by invitation only, with business leaders including three area organizations currently implementing similar social enterprise opportunities in Flint: St. Luke NEW Life Center, Joy Tabernacle’s Urban Renaissance Program and Forge Flint.


We sincerely hope that Father Boyle’s visit will serve as a catalyst to greater and deeper change throughout the community. We are committed to serve our community with every resource we have, especially our youth who are in need of mentoring and positive adult friendships based upon God’s unconditional love for all of us.
