Who We Are

Chicago northside at a Glance

45 Years

In the lives of chicago teens

In the late 1970's Young Life Leaders began showing young people how much God cares about them by showing up in their world and sharing the message of God's love through Jesus in ways and words they could understand and relate to.

55 Volunteers

working toward a vision

Northside volunteers serve in a variety of ways to further our mission of reaching young people. ​ From mentoring a teen mom to serving on a finance committee, there is a need and great opportunity for adults to share their time, talent and treasure. ​ We also partner with like-minded churches and community organizations.

Multicultural

reaching all kinds of kids

Our context is the city. ​ Whether it's teen moms, kids with disabilities, public school kids, immigrant kids, Young Life leaders are walking alongside a diverse array of young people, living and attending to school on the densely populated North side.

100+ Kids

known by name

We value quality over quantity of relationships, ​ long-term commitment to kids, ​ life-on-life discipleship. ​ ​ We cultivate community where kids know they are loved, valued and belong. We help young people develop as leaders to impact their community.
