Young Life’s new ministry aimed at teenage mothers called YoungLives will officially launch in Carroll County on January 1, 2018, but has been a product of several years of planning and prayer. “We are so excited to bring this ministry to Carroll County to serve a population of teenagers that is so often overlooked and written off,” said Young Life Area Director Matt Michael.

Young Life, an international organization, believes in the power of presence, and that kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Young Life’s multicultural ministry, which already includes a ministry in Carroll County focused on reaching teenagers with special needs called Capernaum, is arguably the largest of its kind in the United States.

Through the new YoungLives ministry, pregnant or teenage mothers in Carroll County will receive emotional, spiritual and practical support while learning parenting skills from those who have walked the road already. “YoungLives is a one-on-one mentorship. We offer a way to help teenage mothers meet others in their situation and not feel isolated,” said Kristy Streett, Young Life Carroll County’s new YoungLives Coordinator. “We already have a group of six trained mentors and are now excited to get the word out about the ministry as we raise additional support for it and begin to connect these mentors with teen moms.”
