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.

“What GOOD that YL has done for me is it has showed me the unconditional love of Jesus and given me the best friends to share it with. My leaders have helped shape me into the woman i am today, and they have always been by my side. YL has completely changed my life.” - Reagan Hetrick, Byrd ‘21

Coronavirus Update - Young Life Shreveport

💥YOUNG LIFE UPDATE💥

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.

Whether students have questions, need answers, or just need to laugh, your Young Life leaders are ready. #YoungLife
