You Were Made For This.


Life to the full.

​ Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.​


There are two tax credit eligible ministries in Young Life. Capernaum, our ministry to teens and young adults with disabilities, and YoungLives, our ministry to teen parents, both rely on tax credit donations to provide opportunities for kids to hear about the love of Jesus through relationships with leaders, regular club activities and camping opportunities. ​

Capernaum​ and YoungLives​ are Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organizations​ and contributions to these ministries are eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit (formerly known as the Working Poor Tax Credit). ​ You can make a contribution to one of these ministries and lower your Arizona tax liability. ​ This tax credit is separate from the Foster Care tax credit and separate from the school tax credits. They all have their own individual credit limits. A taxpayer may make contributions to all of the eligible types of tax credits if they desire.

Married taxpayers​ can reduce their taxes by up to $800;​ single and head of household​ taxpayers can reduce their taxes by up to $400. ​

The Arizona QCO Code for Capernaum is 20894. ​ The Arizona QCO Code for YoungLives​ is 20685.

Who We Are

at a Glance


Young Life begins in the USA

In a town in Texas, at the request of his pastor, a young associate pastor named Jim Rayburn 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.

Today, Young Life is a global organization with local focus. You'll find Young Life leaders from diverse cultures, nationalities and backgrounds in over 100 countries around the world. ​
