Everybody wants to live a full life, especially adolescents, but we are finding that life is increasingly more complicated and confusing. Busyness, stress, divorce, abuse, neglect, depression, are just a few of the everyday enemies that are common place in the lives of teenagers today. Communities are frustrated, parents are tired, and kids are hungry and thirsty for fullness. Young Life recognized this problem 75 years ago and understands this reality intimately. Young Life in the Smoky Mountains lives
on the front lines of this battle for teens. We build relationships with
teenagers in hopes of helping them navigate the rough waters of high
school and point students in the direction of full life both here and now, and in the life to come.
