Parents of YLer's

Information for Parents

Parents, thank you for your interest in Young Life, whether at Rutgers University or your local community. Chances are you're a parent who wants the best for your child, which is why you are here! If that's true, you'll be glad to know that in Young Life we also want the best for your child!
In Young Life, we seek to be involved in the lives of the teenagers we know. That's why you will find our adult leaders spending time with your sons and daughters, engaging them in positive, life-affirming activities. That's also why you'll find our leaders helping your children with their homework and tutoring them so they can do well in school, or coaching them on the field. We believe that the best way to make a difference in someone's life is through the power of relationships. By spending time with teenagers, our adult leaders are role modeling what it means to live life abundantly with integrity and purpose.

A Word about our Leaders! (The best people in Jersey!)

Our Leaders absolutely love what they do. So much so, in fact, that they do it for free! That is not a typo. Our leaders spend countless hours leading Young Life because of the way it benefits who they are, the community around them, and because it honors God. They are background checked, trained, capable, and willing people. They are trustworthy.

Our passion: Keeping Kids SAFE!

An important part of our commitment to young people is how we keep teens safe. Our leaders know they are responsible for modeling lives of hope and integrity. As a result, all of our leaders undergo a rigorous screening process that includes a written application, interviews, character references, criminal background and driving history checks, and a comprehensive training course. Our goal is to produce mission-minded leaders who go on to become mentors and adult friends to the young people they serve. If you allow your son or daughter to become involved in Young Life, you can be assured that your child will be supervised by caring adults who take your child's safety and well-being seriously.
Young Life's Human Resources Department has developed missionwide policies and procedures to ensure that teens are protected when they are with their Young Life leaders as well as when they participate in Young Life-sponsored activities.
