Young Life would overwhelmingly recommend their leadership experience to a friend.


Because students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show up by going where kids are, meeting them as they are and believing in who they can be. Our leaders are committed to being involved in kids' lives -- from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what's important to them and showing them Jesus in how they live their own lives. .


Young Life is making a difference in the lives of kids in the Skagit Valley because of supportive adults who care about kids. Our local Committee is comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and members of the community to provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for our Skagit Valley Young Life team. Our Committee meets once a month to plan, pray and proactively support our Young Life, Wyldlife and YoungLives groups.

Young Life Area Director

Young Life has been part of my DNA since I can remember. Growing up, I attended Club with my friends, was committed to our weekly Campaigners group, my Dad was a Young Life leader and our family all served in the annual BBQ booth at the fair. As a senior, I attended Malibu for the first time and it changed my life forever. Beyond the themed nights, the blob and other incredible memories, it was at Malibu that the Lord captured my heart in a real way and I began a lifelong journey of following Christ. ​ I bring a passion for Young Life and experience with Club gatherings, Campaigners, volunteer management, event planning and fundraising. Plus, I bring the perspective of having attended, participated in and led Young Life teams. I firmly believe and have experienced how time with an adult who shows up and cares can have long-term spiritual implications. I am thrilled to be a part of the team that will share Christ with the youth of Skagit Valley!
