You Were Made For This.

COVID-19 Update (as of September 21, 2020):

Young Life San Francisco is excited to continue being a part of students' lives. We will, as always, follow all San Francisco County rules and requirements as we engage in in-person gatherings. The following are the specific guidelines we will be adhering to:

  • We will gather outdoors in groups of 12 or fewer.
  • If eating or drinking is involved, the group will be 6 or fewer.
  • Social distancing protocols will be followed: at least six feet apart, wearing masks, having enough hand sanitizer for everyone present.
  • We will NOT be having indoor gatherings or overnight events of any size.

Kids that participate in these activities must have a consent form signed by a parent (or themselves if they are 18 or older). Please note in particular the Transportation Agreement on the consent form. We will give rides only to those students whose parents have also signed that section. Masks will be required and we will have the windows rolled down.

Please contact your leader for any further questions or concerns. We can't wait to see you soon!

Here's a VIDEO TO show you MORE about young life.

Who We Are

at a Glance


Young Life begins in the USA

In a town in Texas, at the request of his pastor, a young associate pastor named Jim Rayburn 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.


Countries with Young Life staff and leaders

Today, Young Life is a global organization with local focus. You'll find Young Life leaders from diverse cultures, nationalities and backgrounds in over 100 countries around the world. ​

Two million

young people reached by Young Life staff and leaders

Whether it's in cities or villages, towns or tower blocks, in countries on every continent, Young Life leaders are working with over two million young people, right in their own neighborhoods.


Kids involved weekly

Since 1941, Young Life leaders have walked with kids and earned the right to be heard in an exhausting and exciting world. In 2018, 348,000 kids were involved every week all around the world.
