Become a Leader

Young Life 
volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds. They're moms and dads, college students and working professionals, retirees and other compassionate adults who want God's best for kids. The diversity of our volunteers helps us make an eternal difference with all kinds of kids in all kinds of places. Meet a few of our volunteers below!​ 
When you're a leader, you're also joining a community of dynamic staff, leaders and committee. It's not uncommon for leaders to say that they get more out of being a leader than what they give.
Are you interested? Think that maybe YOU were made for this? Then get started by contacting the Chicagoland Regional Office.


​The College student

Early on, Krisangela realized there was something more to life than she could see. 
Now, in-between classes, she spends her time investing in the lives of high school girls who call her their Young Life leader.

​The young professional

Although Parker's schedule is busy with a full-time job, he still finds the time to spend time 
with high school students to show them what life is really all about.


​the parent

Brandy loves middle school students; she is a mom to one, after all. 
And when she found the opportunity to become a ​WyldLife leader, she answered the call.
