Partnering Financially With Young Life Africa

Donor Page.jpg 


In Young Life, support is usually raised from financial partners in surrounding communities.  Young Life Africa operates in a different paradigm.  Many of the communities where Young Life operates in Africa are impoverished and unable to provide adequate support to operate Young Life locally.  Currently, we are raising approximately 5% of our annual budget in the continent of Africa, but we are committed to growing that percentage over time. 

We have three ways you can partner with us financially:

Country and Staff Sponsorships


The countries we serve, and our indigenous staff that serve as Young Life leaders to the kids of those countries, are supported directly by individuals, small groups and churches.  These “Sponsors” partner with our African staff by supporting them financially and in prayer.  Sponsors are frequently transformed spiritually through the relationship they develop with African staff as they pray for them, visit them in their African cities or villages and partner with them to reach and love kids.  If you would like more information on Sponsorship, please contact:

Camp Scholarships 

It costs an average of $50 per kid to send a kid to Young Life Camp in Africa.  We are in the midst of a campaign to send 64,000 teenagers, volunteers and staff to camp this summer.  Go here to learn more and view an awesome video describing camp in Africa.

Developing Global Leaders 

The Developing Global Leaders program allows selected international Young Life volunteer leaders to participate in a four-year leadership program which includes a full scholarship to a local university, life-skills mentoring and leadership training.  While in the program, participants continue to serve as volunteer Young Life leaders in their communities.  These trained leaders, with a heart for Jesus, go on to become tomorrow's leaders in their community and their nation.  Being a sponsor of a DGL student means partnering with them financially and entering into relationship with them at this critical point of their life.
