Young Life begins plans to come to Raleigh County

BECKLEY-(WOAY) A faith-based youth organization known well throughout the country is heading to Raleigh County.

Young Life is looking to expand its mentoring services to Beckley. State Director Scott Berg met with potential board members Tuesday. He needs about 10 to 15 people on his board that will help with fundraising and the Young Life Camp, where kids study the bible and develop other skills.

Berg hopes to have everything in place by the end of the fall.

“We’ve had a lot of interest for Young Life in Raleigh County,” Berg said. “This is the attempt to react to that interest. We want people in this community who there kids and see fit with Young life and make it happen here.”

Young Life also just bought nearly 1200 acres near the Gauley River for its new camp.
