YoungLIVES helps Teen Moms
Is your church looking for a way to support teen moms and their babies, but you don't know how to begin? You might want to plug into YoungLives. A ministry of Young Life, it extends compassion to teen moms, offering support and hope, through clubs, camps, and mentoring.
Volunteers mentor moms to Christ
The heart of YoungLives ministry is the building of one-on-one mentoring relationships between adult Christian women and teen moms. The mentors offer unconditional love and friendship, help in finding the practical resources teen moms need for their children, and assistance in planning for their future. In all of this the mentors hope to forge a bridge that paves the way for mentors to share the message of Jesus Christ.
Camps & clubs fostor friendships & spiritual growth
Through club and camp activities teen moms have an opportunity to build friendships and understand that they are not alone. They find time to relax, play, and learn about God and His plan for their lives.
