Northwestern Begins New Partnership with Young Life College – Twin Cities

By Jennifer Clemens on Friday, December 15, 2023

University of Northwestern – St. Paul is pleased to announce a new partnership with Young Life College – Twin Cities. Young Life is a Christian nonprofit that reaches out to middle school, high school, and college students on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. Young Life College and University of Northwestern will be welcome to educate and recruit at each other’s events, and Young Life College staff will get a 10% discount to any of Northwestern’s Adult Undergraduate or Graduate programs.  

Young Life College believes that Jesus offers the best of what college students and young adults are looking for: community, adventure, and significance. Young Life College trains Christian young adults to minister on the student’s own campus or on the campuses of other, often secular, colleges and universities. The organization hosts many on-campus and off-campus events that are not intimidating or overtly spiritual to students who may be unsure of, or against, going to other religious gatherings.

With over 80 years of helping students find significance and hope through Jesus, Young Life College complements Northwestern’s mission to equip students to grow intellectually and spiritually, to serve effectively in their professions, and to give God-honoring leadership in the home, church, community, and world.
