The Dalles Young Life

Our Mission

Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.​

A Community

The Dalles Young Life is a community of Leaders, Committee members, parents, supporters, and students living out the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


Leaders boldly live out their faith by following Jesus' example by entering the world of adolescents. They step out of their comfort zones and into all the excitement and uncertainty that is the world of kids so they can build relationships, share life, and earn the privilege to be called a friend. These relationships provide opportunities for Leaders to share the source of the love, joy, peace, kindness, understanding, and patience they bring to these friendships.

Adult Committee

The local Young Life Committee is comprised of professionals, parents, business owners, grandparents, and community leaders. This group works with the local staff to make decisions about the ministry, raise support and provide resources, and increase awareness in the community. They are the backbone of the local Young Life mission.​

Prayer Supporters

Supporters of Young Life come in many forms. The most important is prayer partners. Young Life started because of prayer, has been powered by prayer, and will continue to be guided by prayer. Please consider joining our prayer team! You can signup to receive prayer requests and reminders via email and or text below. Thank you for praying for The Dalles Young Life!

Financial Supporters

Another important type of supporter that helps us accomplish the mission of reaching students with the life-changing power of the Gospel is financial. Your tax-deductible donations provide the resources needed to implement excellent Gospel-centered programs and experiences for students throughout the school year and summer.

Please consider becoming a financial partner. Your monthly or one-time gift of any amount helps the local staff and volunteers reach the next kid with friendship and an invitation to "come and see" Jesus.

Parents, Students, and Community

Young Life doesn't happen without the support of parents, students, and the community. As members of the community ourselves, we know that there are lots of people who care about adolescents and it is our privilege to partner with them to support and encourage our young people during these significant years.

Please contact us anytime with questions, concerns, or opportunities. You can get in contact via social media or through the Contact Us page anytime.
