About Young Life of Canada:
Founded in 1954, Young Life of Canada’s mission is “to care for Canadian teenagers and earn the right to share God’s great love” and they do this by creating “meaningful, mentoring relationships between leaders and teens and creating spaces where teens are listened to, and where questions of life and faith can be discussed.”
Young Life of Canada has five major programs: Contact Work, Club, Camp, Skatelife, and Capernaum. Contact Work has leaders who spend time with teens at schools, sporting events, malls, coffee shops, and skate parks. Club consist of regular meetings hosted by volunteer leaders and staff to talk about their lives and the Christian faith. Camp provides an opportunity for teens in the west coast to attend the RockRidge Canyon resort camp near Princeton, BC, and for teens in Ontario to attend the Saranac Village camp in New York to build friendship and a sense of significance. Skatelife has staff who immerse themselves in the “skate scene” and build relationships with the teens there. And finally, Capernaum is a program for young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to develop friendships and build self-esteem through meetings, camps, and other activities.
