We interrupt COVID-19 for an important message

“2021 is off to cracking start for Young Life Australia, although a little different from previous years,” says Young Life Australia CEO, Glyn Henman.

There was no national Summer Camp due to Covid-19, but we did not sit by and wait for the year to start. Instead, we ran a range of fantastic state-based camp and holiday activities in South Australia, Queensland and NSW/ACT. We have seen 90 young people and 58 volunteers from around the country have a great Young Life experience over the summer break.  I am grateful to all the staff and volunteers who dared to dream for their young friends and found ways to not only have a great time, but share the hope we have in Jesus in these strangest of days.”

“After a year of shutdowns, social distancing and loss of direction, our young people are longing to re-form significant relationships and share life together again. As we move well into the first half of the year, we are seeing all things Young Life started again. We’ve met for staff training, gathered the volunteer teams and have relaunched our work with young people in the community,” says Glyn.
