Who We Are


into the world of kids and walk alongside them through some of the most exciting and tumultuous years of their lives.

We desire to build meaningful relationships and give kids a supportive community.

WE build

teams of volunteer leaders who build meaningful relationships with kids. In March of 2015, Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child released a study saying, “Every child who winds up doing well has had at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive adult.”


the hope of who kids can become and how life was designed to be. ​ We want kids to see themselves the way God sees them.

We long for kids to know their value to live in light of God's unconditional love for them.


to serve every kid from every neighborhood in the great city of Boston. We believe that every kid deserves a Young Life or WyldLife leader who can tell them about the love Jesus has for them.
