Representative members of the Young Life Leavenworth Support Committee attended the Inland NW Regional Young Life Leadership Weekend in Spokane, Wash., Feb. 8-10. The Leadership Weekend is an annual time of renewal, encouragement and training for Young Life staff, volunteer leaders and committee members, provided by the Young Life organization. Mr. Bill Robinson, president emeritus, Whitworth University, was the inspirational key note speaker and impressed the committee with his heart for kids and the work Young Life is doing.
"The entire Leavenworth committee is very excited to be part of returning Young Life to Leavenworth and the Upper Valley area. We have been working hard to make this a reality for the teens in our community. We care about kids and know what Young Life has to offer them. Young Life leaders are trained and equipped to reach out and bring a message of hope to teenagers. Local adults and churches are catching the vision for the positive impact Young Life will have on the kids and communities of Leavenworth and the Upper Valley area," said Jordan Brown, support committee chairman.
Young Life is an international Christian organization for middle, high school and college students. Our staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them - fun, adventure and friendship. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we think matters most of all - the truth about God and His love for us. Founded in 1941, Young Life has more than 3,400 staff and 45,000 volunteers and is active in more than 80 countries reaching more than 1.2 million kids annually. Young Life leaders bring more than 140,000 kids each year to one of our 32 camping properties worldwide.
