Leaders involve themselves in the high schoolers' life through their ability to "just be there" for kids who need a mentor, or someone to talk to. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. Being a Young Life Leader is one of the MOST fun opportunities out there. You can goof off with high schoolers, while additionally showing them the love of Christ. You can also have the opportunity to travel with these kids as your relationships grow stronger and stronger. I have, honestly, never experienced something as rewarding as Macon Young Life.

It is also the only fraternity to hold a constitutional bond with a predominantly African-American sorority, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
