Bill Paige to return May 8
for Annual Young Life Banquet!

The event is free however reservations are required. They can be made by ​​clicking here​!

“Bill Paige is by far one of Young Life’s most requested speakers,” said Sue Frownfelter, Area Director for Young Life of Genesee County. “He is warm, funny and an inspiration to all who have been fortunate enough to hear him speak. What’s more, he understands the challenges of families in Genesee County. His passion has impacted countless lives, including those in other countries. We believe he is returning with a special message for Genesee County.” 

Young Life’s Annual Dinner will include Paige’s keynote presentation with an exciting overview of the success of Young Life of Genesee County. Young Life is an international faith-based non-profit organization that has been active in Genesee County since 1965, thanks to the vision and heart of late businessman Woody Skaff who spearheaded the outreach to unchurched youth. Since then, thousands of area youth have been positively impacted by the high-energy programming and one-on-one relational mentoring that occurs with Young Life staff and volunteers.

Young Life of Genesee County is locally supported through local businesses, foundations, churches and individuals from throughout the county. With a projected budget of more than $400,000, the banquet is an important part of raising the necessary funds to sustain and expand the outreach efforts.

Young Life currently is available for middle school and high school aged youth throughout the county with active programming specifically for Flint, Grand Blanc, Linden, and Lake Fenton. Three full-time and two part-time staff head up teams of trained volunteers, each undergoing background checks and fingerprinting, before even attempting to reach a pool of some 7,800 youth in the designated areas.

Paige served 21 years in senior leadership of Young Life, recently retiring as Special Assistant to the President of Young Life, Prior to that, he was a policeman and detective in and around New York City Metropolitan Area. He served fourteen years as the associate chaplain at Children’s Village, where he worked with emotionally disturbed boys in the city. An ordained minister, Paige speaks frequently at chapel services for Major League Baseball (MLB) and National Football League (NFL) teams, including two opportunities to speak at the NFL Pro Bowl.

Paige recently authored Hope on a Rope: Lifelines for Knuckleheads​, a book that examines the subject of hope through scriptures and personal anecdotes, describing with candor how he encountered issues that could have defeated him.

Welcome to GenCo!

Hundreds of youth 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.
