Young Life is made up of people like you - who know that life was meant to be lived to the fullest. Young Life has been reaching kids since the 1940s. There are Young Life clubs all over the world and in every state, but currently only 4 Deaf Young Life clubs in the country--we want to see that number grow by starting a Deaf Young Life club right here in Nashville.
