Developing Global Leaders Mentoring, Training and Transforming

Raising Up a New Generation of Leaders

How it works:
We choose 100 students every year from the more than 33,000 who are involved with Young Life internationally.

Students are chosen based on their:
  • Leadership potential
  • Academic excellence
  • Involvement in Young Life
  • Spiritual maturity
  • Financial need

We provide chosen students with:

  • Money for a university education and some cost-of-living expenses
  • A mentor to walk with them through a life-skills curriculum
  • Ministry training from Young Life staff
  • Leadership responsibilities to recruit, train and impact others

Individuals or groups then choose a student to sponsor for all ($275 a month) or part (as little as $25 a month) of the student's need.

Sponsors of students will:

  • Receive a sponsor packet from the Developing Global Leaders office
  • Receive biannual updates about your student
  • Commit to walking with them through this program (usually four years)

But most all, sponsors play a key role in transforming a life that will transform the lives of many others. Find out how to get involved.
