The local chapter of a nationwide organization that aims to help high school students is in need of financial assistance.

The Southeast Indiana Young Life has launched a fundraising campaign in order to keep the organization operating at its current level. The chapter includes ministries in Batesville, Lawrenceburg and also a program for middle school students named Wyldlife.

Young Life is a non-denominational Christian ministry that reaches out to high school students through volunteers, weekly meetings and summer camps. The program is hoping to reach two million students nationwide by 2016.

Sean Boyce has been involved with Young Life since he was in high school at East Central and has since become the area director of the Southeast Indiana Young Life.

“Our area has continued to grow and expand over the past few years. We have more volunteer Leaders, more staff, more ministries (Lawrenceburg and Wyldlife) and we are interacting with more kids than ever. With all of this growth, we also have a lot more expenses,” Boyce explained.

The online fundraising campaign is underway and geared toward reaching $60,000 in 60 days.

The local Young Life chapter will not be able to operate at it’s current level if the funds are not raised, according to Boyce.

“Significant cutbacks will have to be made,” Boyce said. “Personally, I can’t imagine where my life would be today if a Young Life Leader didn’t reach out and invest in my life.”

The local leader has been part of Young Life for over half of his life. Boyce says the program has helped young community members overcome drug and sexual abuse, and make positive choices.

“I have seen miracles in the lives of kids in our community. I have witness kids come into a relationship with Jesus Christ, and as a result, begin to live a life of restoration.”
