Did you enjoy your middle school years? For most, this time period gets a bad rap. Julie Clapp (Mission Director of WyldLife), however, has a different vision for what comes after elementary school and before high school. She has hope, and so can you. We're @younglifepod if your tweeting/instagramming. Sign up here for more info.
L.A. is warm, and warm is the new cool. This week, we journey to the Greater L.A. Young Life Summit (#LAYL17), with an interview from one of the keynote speakers, Dr. Kara Powell (Fuller Youth Institute.) Check out Dr. Powell's work here, including her most recent book, Growing Young, and another, Sticky Faith. Hit us up: @younglifepod.
Do you build community the summer staff way? How do summer staff coordinators do what we all try to do everyday? Today, we take a dive into the world of summer staff with Josh Griffin (VP— Strategy), Anneke Brown (RD— Capital Region), and a 'guinea pig' named Luke Waltermire (Volunteer Leader— George Mason University), fresh off a recent stint on a summer staff crew. We're @younglifepod, and today use #IdidSummerStaff if you have your own reflections.
Carolina Pujol (Regional Director— Patagonia) brings her rich perspective on life, leadership, and Young Life. She proposes the simplest, but most profound question, one you might consider today— ‘Why not me if He called me?’ We’re @younglifepod.
A ‘fireside chat’ with our president, Newt Crenshaw, including reflections on this ‘freshmen’ year, early wins in the Forward movement, actively shaping Young Life’s culture, and his willingness to take a hit, if necessary. We’re @younglifepod on twitter/instagram. You can contribute to the show by joining our newsletter, where you’ll be prompted to share your ideas/comments/stories! Keep pioneering.
