Young people want a place where they’re accepted, where they can have meaningful friendships, where they can experience fun, adventure and freedom. They also want to discover their purpose in the world. Young Life Capernaum leaders develop relationships with teenagers with disabilities where all are invited, celebrated and needed. Those who need assistance can and should participate fully in activities that build self-esteem and challenge their limits.
Today, Young Life is a global organization with local focus. You'll find Young Life leaders from various backgrounds loving and sharing life with our friends with disabilities in 331 cities across the world.
Whether it's in their classrooms, homes, or Special Olympics competitions, our leaders are committed to sharing life with our friends with disabilities. Since local Capernaum work began in NKY in 2009, nearly 3,000 adolescents have been reached by our leader team.
In Young Life, we believe friendships and the shared adventure of camping experiences are essential and excellent tools in getting students to the foot of the cross. One-hundred forty-five of our NKY friends with disabilities experienced the Gospel at our Great Wolf Lodge, Overnight Summer Camp and Day Camp outreach camping events in 2019.
