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.

Our History

Young Life in Ouachita Parish was started in by a group of  people in our community concerned about kids.  They desired for adolescents in Monroe to know Life and Life to the full. 

Dan Vander Woude, with his wife Breann and two dogs, moved to Monroe in July 2011 to be our first area director.  Click Here to learn more about Dan and Bre.  Young Life is excited to have a presence in northeast Louisiana, and we know that adolescents will be impacted for generations to come.
