Young Life thinks the world of kids. We believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Young Life leaders are caring adults who come sharing that hope as well as fun and lasting friendships with kids. Young Life is also all about fun. From club and camp to Campaigners and other activities, adolescents will have a blast laughing, trying new things and being with their friends.

The Start of Young Life in Ouachita Parish
