Making An Impact


Young Life has been impacting kids in the Gallatin Valley for over 45 years!  There is a living legacy of thousands of people who have been impacted by Gallatin Valley Young Life.  With this proven track record, we know this is an organization you'll want to get behind. 

Gallatin Valley Young Life impacts the lives of hundreds of high school students each year - that is significant!  And as high school students are impacted, so are families, the community as a whole, and our future.

Young Life in the Gallatin Valley is active in Bozeman High School, as well as Sacajawea and Chief Joseph Middle Schools.  Young Life is making a difference in kids' lives by going were they are, not waiting for them to come to us.​

We accomplish our mission by...

5. Providing experiences that are fun, adventurous and life-changing.
6. Sharing our lives and the good news of Jesus Christ with adolescents.
7. Inviting them to personally respond to the good news.
8. Loving them regardless of theri response.
9. Nurturing kids so they might grow in their love for Christ and the knowledge of God's Word and become people who can share their faith with others.
10. Helping young people develop skills, assests and attitudes to reach their full God-giving potential.
11. Encouraging kids to live connected to the Body of Christ by being an active member of a local congregation.

Vision for our Valley

Our vision will always be to serve as a lifeline for kids, one kid at a time.  To accomplish this goal, we are seeking to expand our ministry into new schools and communities, and to reach further into the pre-teen culture. Over the last forty years, Gallatin Valley Young Life has expanded into three schools, but that is not enough.  We are working to develop a strong network of leaders and committee members who will serve specific communities within the valley.  With a strong support team of adults focused on these areas we can continue the Young Life legacy in our community.  Over the next five years our goal is to expand into two additional schools.  We have a strategy to get there; we know that all kids are "too important to ignore".

We are committed to introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grown in their faith. Young Life also aims to establish and maintain a presence at all high schools and middle schools in the Gallatin Valley.
