Young Life Shreveport

Bringing out the positive side of today’s young people and pointing them toward a hopeful future! Young Life in Shreveport is part of a world-class organization for adolescents.

Our staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them — fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we think matters most of all — the truth about God and His love for us.
