This has been an exciting season at YL Hoddesdon. We have had new contact with schools, met lots of new kids, had several new leaders join (and said some sad goodbyes to some!).
What is Young Life International?
Young Life strives to build positive relationships with young people in an unstable and confusing world.
Young Life is all about relationships with teenagers. Young Life equips volunteer leaders to meet teenagers where they are, in schools, around town, anywhere, build relationships and share life with them. The purpose of Young Life is to introduce adolescents to Christ and help them grow in their faith. We believe that every young person deserves the chance to hear about what God has done for them, to give them the opportunity to respond to that and ultimately to keep loving them, regardless of their response.
What activities are offered?
Club nights are like a party with a purpose. Young Life is currently joining with hertford YL.
Young Life and Wyldlife camps - young people consistently tell us that camp is the best week of their lives. YLI has a beautiful camp in Scotland at Loch Monzievaird.
Ngage is a safe place where young people can explore more about having a relationship with God.
What are the goals of Young Life International Hoddesdon and Broxbourne?
* Building on foundations of the incredible first 7 years. To raise new funding and recruit and train new leaders and committee members
* Help young people who come to faith through Young Life find a home in a local church
* We have met our goal of launching a Wyldlife ministry for those in school years 6-9
Over the next few months, the area will be advertising for a new Area Director and an administrator. In the meantime, please keep praying for the ministry and continue the amazing commitment you have, helping to make Hoddesdon a place where Jesus is known.
- For the leaders who give up their time and energy and for new leaders to come forward- especially females
- For the finances, as we now look to build a reserve for the future.
- For a young person interested in applying for our Developing Global Leaders Program- that she has clarity on making choices for the future
- For a new Area Director staff person

- Praise for very generous camp scholarship we've received
