Your Support is Crucial

"I've never really met anyone that I can trust, and connect with like I do my Young Life leader. We had some great talks...and it really means a lot to me." - Lewis, DHS

Young Life is doing is something truly special in Darien and Rowayton, and we need partners like you so it can continue and thrive.  Already this year, more than 100 middle school and high school students have attended a Young Life or WyldLife event.

Through your generous support we can raise the necessary support to enable our full-time staff, Jen Gros, and the team of volunteer leaders to continue to focus on building meaningful relationships and mentoring adolescents.

Each local budget includes staff compensation (salary, cost of living adjustment, FICA, worker's comp, full benefits) as well as all field expenses for leaders (training, office, promotion and all programmatic costs.)

How Young Life is Funded

Young Life in Darien and Rowayton is for our community and is funded solely through local donations.  It is up to Darien parents to keep it going through monthly donations and one-time gifts.  Young Life is a “low-risk, high-reward” investment in our community and in our kids.

Young Life is a not-for-profit organization. We do not require membership fees or dues from kids attending our events. Therefore, increased attendance and program growth does not translate into increased revenue.

Every gift is appreciated. Thank you for your support!

The Impact

We believe that in order to reach kids we must go where they go and enter their world. Every week in our local area, Young Life staff and volunteers can be found at school events and practices and at kids' favorite hangouts. In many cases, they are the only adult friends kids have in their lives.

"It really maked me feel good to know that I am loved so much." Jimmy, DHS
