Impact Polk 2017: Young Life’s “Every Kid, Everywhere, For Eternity”

Impact Polk grant through the George W. Jenkins Fund within the GiveWell Community Foundation

In the difficult adolescent years, Young Life comes alongside teens offering hope, encouragement, and for many, light in a dark place. Young Life introduces kids to a faith-based community of adults who will mentor them and be a steady force in their lives. Young Life is for EVERY kid regardless of their background.

Teens who attend Young Life’s camp program often refer to it as “the best week of my life,” and through their “Every Kid, Everywhere, For Eternity” program, teenagers in financial need can receive funding for camp. Thanks to an Impact Polk grant from the George W. Jenkins Fund within the GiveWell Community Foundation to Young Life’s program, teenagers received camp scholarships in 2017.
