CAMPUS LIFE knows that adolescence can be the best of times and the worst of times, and it is always a pivotal time in a young person’s life.

Campus Life has found the importance of shared experiences between a student and caring supportive adult are indispensable. This is why we place the primary focus on relationships and not programs.

Campus Life is committed to helping students as they wrestle with issues they face, both big and small, while pursuing a balanced life: mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially.

Campus Life knows the journey of adolescence is different for everyone. We are committed to coming alongside students, meeting them where they are, in order to help them navigate these years.

What is CAMPUS LIFE all about?

Campus Life is all about building healthy relationships by using creative programs to help young people live a balanced life academically, physically, socially, and spiritually.

We are constantly investing in the lives of students by meeting them where they are at–basketball games, the local McDonalds, a trip to the mall, or even just hanging out at the YFC Student Center–and providing an opportunity for us to get to know each others’ stories.

Campus Life is all about relational ministry and we do this by providing experiences students may never have: a trip to Colorado, an overnight shopping excursion to Chicago, a chance to join a local church for Sunday morning worship, or meeting with a small group of students with an adult volunteer to learn more about who Jesus is and discover more about themselves.

With the support of the local community, Campus Life is all about the EVERY kid.

CAMPUS LIFE combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools. Like every ministry of YFC, CAMPUS LIFE seeks to engage young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.
