Young Life has a presence in Deep Run, Glen Allen, Godwin, Freeman, and Hermitage high schools, as well as the University of Richmond. We also have Capernaum, a specialized ministry that serves adolescents with disabilities.  

The purpose of Young Life Richmond West End is to help introduce high school and college students to Jesus in a fun, genuine, and attractive way. Many students are not only introduced to Jesus through Young Life, but it is also a valuable tool that helps them grow in their faith!

Jesus is the strongest, grandest, most attractive personality ever to grace this earth, but a careless messenger with the wrong approach can reduce all this magnificence to a level of boredom.” – Jim Rayburn, Founder

Young Life leaders invest countless hours in kids by walking alongside them and taking the time to really know them in THEIR world. Leaders are committed to being involved with kids' lives -- from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what's important to them. Our leaders help kids consider the direction of their lives and they offer hope for their future. Each leader goes through training, mentoring and shadowing before they are placed in a school.  To learn more, click the About tab above!
