Who We Are

at a Glance


Young Life begins in Asheville in the late 60's.

Since 1969, our leaders and staff began showing young people how much God cares about them by showing up in their world and sharing the message of God's love through Jesus in ways and words they could understand and relate to.

5 staff & 45 volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Young Life

In BuncoYL, we have three full-time staff, two part-time time and over 45 volunteers that are reaching kids. These leaders give hundreds of hours every week to kids all across the area. ​
