Most students have something to look forward to every week. For some that may be Friday night lights or even block schedule days. In this case, these students look forward to Monday nights where they attend club night for a group called YoungLife.

According to their website, this organization is a non-denominational and non-profit and thinks the world of the kids in Manhattan. This group, separated by gender and grade, does things from Go-Karting to camping to Wednesday night Campaigners.

Last Monday, YoungLife had their back to school club night at the Kansas State Recreation Center

“We played sand volleyball,” sophomore Andi Siebert said. “They had a raffle so you could earn a chance to get some YoungLife merch.”

There was an abundance of students that showed up on Monday. There were about 50-60 students ranging from high school freshman to seniors. YoungLife is lead by a hand full of college students in Manhattan.

“All of the leaders make it so much fun and you want to be there,” sophomore Faith Beyer said. “…You really know your leaders care about you and want you to be there.”

YoungLife is a time for high school kids to come together, enjoy themselves, have fun and get mentored by some pretty cool people.

“…They know what we like compared to older people,” Siebert said. “They’re more with the time.”
