Shreveport WyldLife

You were made for this. WyldLife is 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 bout something that we believe matters most of all -- the truth about God and His love for them. 04/03/2021

Coronavirus Update - Young Life Shreveport

As part of our on-going response to COVID-19 globally and Gov. Edwards actions last week, we won't be holding any Young Life events until after April 13. Once school in Louisiana resumes, so will Young Life club and campaigners. But, the most important work of Young Life goes on -- leaders coming alongside students (in accordance with CDC recommendations, common sense, and parents' wishes). Whether students have questions, need answers, or just need to laugh, your Young Life leaders are ready. #YoungLife Dear friends, We have no doubt that your inboxes are filled with messages regarding COVID-19.
