Young Life is a chaplaincy provider for 14 schools in 3 states.
Chaplaincy programs seek to uphold the welfare component of school life by providing holistic care and support to students, staff and parents.
A school’s welfare program complements other support services in the school in addressing emotional and mental health, and student engagement in the school environment. The chaplain role is to provide pastoral care, not a formal counselling service.
The Chaplain provides an additional adult role model in schools and operates with an open-door policy; they are there to be available for students and other members of the school community.
