Being a teenager is a lot of fun, but it's not always easy. Young Life believes that teenagers benefit from the influence of caring adults. That's why spending time with them and earning their trust is at the heart of what the youth workers do. We believe that young people's lives have purpose and significance.
Our church partners hold a variety of events and youth communities for any college student who wants to attend. These are welcoming and safe enviroments where students can enjoy being with their mates and leaders. Students at the schools may not even be aware that there are youth group/community activities available to them, as we do not promote these at schools. The church based events and gatherings are separate from the work in the school, however, provide additional social options for youth in the area.
One of the highlights of being part of a youth community is time away at camp where students experience an unforgettable week of adventure, fun and surprises.
The church partners respectfully inform participants about spiritual issues and the Christian faith, but there is never any pressure for participants to conform to the ideas being shared. Teens of any belief or faith background are always welcomed into the youth communities and given space to make their own choices.
Since 1997, the Young Life NZ Trust has been investing in the lives of teenagers and providing strong, positive influences in their lives. In East Auckland Young Life partners with many local churches* to hold fun and informative events that help kids make well-informed decisions about spirituality and many other life issues.
