Nashoba Valley Young Life

Does it matter?


Leaders-​ go to kids, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

Committee- provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team. Young Life is making a difference in the lives of kids around the world because we are supported by adults who care about kids in their community.

Our Programs

Club- ​ A party with a purpose, but before the party ends, a leader shares a simple message about God’s love in a way everyone can understand- even if they have never been to church before.

Campaigners-​ A missional community of students who wish to learn more about their faith.

Camp-​ A week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of fun experiences and kids are able to hear the greatest love story ever told!
