What is Committee?

Effective committees are the lifeline for Young Life in the local area. 
Young Life begins in new ares because of adults who share Young Life's vision and 
want to make a difference in the lives of kids in their community.

Young Life is sustained by adults serving on a local area committee. 
They are unseen and unknown to most of the kids they serve, but these people 
are the foundation for successful ministry in Young Life communities.

A committee's purpose is to share responsibility for the ministry with local Young Life staff. 

Roles include:
  • Praying for the ministry
  • Raising funds to support the local budget and monitoring the area's financial affairs
  • Promoting Young Life in the community
  • Supporting and assisting staff and volunteers
  • Working with the regional director, especially during staff transitions
  • Ensuring the integrity of the local ministry
