Serve Locally

Throughout the year we have projects for groups and individuals where we join together and serve. At each of these locations, they also need ongoing help from individuals on a regular basis. Please read about these opportunities and explore whether God is calling you to serve on a regular basis.

Because kids don’t care how much you know till they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, believing in who they can be. Within Young Life we call the persistent going out into the world of kids “contact work.” But kids just call it friendship. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. They begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.

Volunteer Opportunities


We serve individuals and families in need in the West Valley by providing food, clothing, medical and vocational training assistance, as well as referrals as needed. Our goal is to sustain people in desperate circumstances, empowering them to achieve personal and ­financial independence. We believe we are commanded to do this because Jesus said “love your neighbors as yourselves.”

We are a property like no other and the only ranch of its kind in the area! A 22-acre destination property nestled in Agoura Hills, Golden Heart Ranch is the perfect setting to teach its “Ranchers” valuable independent living and vocational skills while fostering life-long friendships.
