What is YoungLives?

YoungLives is a lifeline for teen moms and their children.  We enter their world, model the unconditional love of Christ and encourage them to become the women and mothers God created them to be.  We then join this hope with practical life skills to equip them for a brighter future.


Mentoring forms the heart of YoungLives.  Mentors build relationships with teen moms, offering guidance in matters of faith, parenting and self-worth.  This investment of time and heart has empowered positive, sustainable change in the lives of many beautiful families worldwide for more than 20 years.  In NYC we are accomplishing this by:

  • Teaching Parenting/Life Skills at local shelter
  • Providing Educational Assistance (tutoring, GED prep) with free childcare
  • Facilitating Small Group Bible Study
  • Mentoring and Leadership development


We have seen teen moms achieve their education and career goals, become more confident in parenting, and live lives rooted in Christ.  YoungLives works!
