Be Part of a Community

It Takes a Community

Even though Young Life is especially for kids, the community is what makes Young Life possible. Parents and community members make Young Life possible by becoming a volunteer Leader or Committee Member, by attending a Young Life fund-raising event, by hosting Young Life or WyldLife events or by simply telling others in the community about Young Life and its commitment to kids.

If you answer "yes" to both of these questions there is a spot for you in the community of people who make Young Life happen here in The Dalles:

Question 1: Do you love Jesus?

Question 2: Do you want students to know Jesus?

If you answered "yes,"scroll down to see how you can be part of the mission to share Jesus Christ with students and help them grow in their faith.

Be a Leader

Leaders go where kids are! Our WyldLife and Young Life Leaders are caring adults who think the world of kids and are excited about getting to know them. We believe that kids need caring adults who are willing to walk with kids through the challenges and thrills of adolescence. While they are walking with kids Leaders are pointing them to Jesus and inviting them to come and see what God had done in their lives and what He can do in theirs.


If you love Jesus and adolescents apply to be a Leader today! With over 1,400 middle and high school students here in The Dalles there are kids waiting for you to be part of their lives and share Jesus with them.
