ACCEPT AND CLOSE
Young Life International began in Northern Ireland in 2010 when Craig Mawhinney started Young Life ministry in Bangor with one single group of 20 young people.
Ten years on, our staff team has now grown to include 17 full or part-time staff who lead multiple expressions of ministry which reach around 400 young people weekly. Most of our ministries function in partnership with the local Church and we now have 5 different ministries in Bangor, 4 in Belfast, and 3 in Holywood, as well as Young Life groups in two schools.
In Young Life International our vision is to see every young person in Ireland have an opportunity to hear about how much God loves them. In Young Life our team of staff and volunteers seek to enter the world of teenagers, meeting them where they are, rather than waiting for them to stumble across a program they could attend.
If you're a young person or student, you’re invited. And if you're an adult who cares about young people, there are a number of ways to get involved.
