Young LIfe is introducing young people to Jesus across Africa – transforming hearts, lives, families, and communities in the process.


Teens from Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone will experience a place of welcome, adventure, laughter, and unconditional love alongside a trusted leader at a Young Life camp where they’ll hear the entire Gospel story, many for the first time.

A teen mom abandoned by her parents finds acceptance again

A street kid with a history of drug abuse finds forgiveness

A young girl finds freedom

An orphan finds love


Some kids have never even left their neighborhood and many will return having met their Savior, Jesus Christ!


You can help reach many teens with the Gospel story and provide a long-term relationship with a Christian mentor to equip them to be Christian leaders in their families and communities.


Ibrahim's Story

Living in Mali, Ibrahim is a 17-year-old Muslim teenager. He was looking for answers to many questions he had about a religion of rules and oppression. A Young Life leader, Josue, invited Ibrahim to join a group to talk about spiritual things.

Dreams of spirits and conflict had plagued Ibrahim, so he was eager to learn more about finding peace in Jesus. After studying the Bible for some time, he called out the name of Jesus, and he saved him in

his dream.


Even though I am a Muslim?” he asked.

When the time for camp approached, Josue made sure Ibrahim was there.  At camp, the speaker shared about Jesus’ life and how He had answers to the questions Ibrahim had been asking.


Ibrahim accepted Christ that day at camp, knowing the challenges that lay ahead by his

decision to follow Jesus.

Hundreds of teenagers across west Africa from unreached people groups are introduced to Jesus and discipled in their faith through our partnership.
