The Greensboro Fellows

Are you a college senior wondering what's next after graduation? Do you wish you had more time to discern your calling and career? Do you want to build a deeper foundation in Christ to launch well into the season after college? 

If so, consider joining us in Greensboro, NC for the Greensboro Fellows Program. 

The Greensboro Fellows
 is a 9-month program (Sept-May) focusing on spiritual and professional development. Dozens of Young Life leaders have gone through the program after college and have loved it! 

You'll have the opportunity to:

  • Work a part-time job in a field of your interest
  • Meet weekly with a Godly mentor
  • Take seminary-level classes in Bible, Church History, and Theology
  • Volunteer with Young Life
  • Learn weekly from community business leaders 
  • Immerse yourself in a holistic approach to vocational discernment
  • Gain top-notch insight into your self through professional leadership development
  • Attend conferences, retreats, and a mission trip to Rwanda
  • Experience a life-changing year that will impact the rest of your future!

Check out this video from three of last year's fellows who have come from different Young Life areas around the country.

If you have questions or interest, you email the fellows directors, Dodd and Becky Drake. They are former Young Life committee chairs and their son is on Young Life staff in Charlotte, NC!

"9 Things You Should Know About Christmas Traditions" || Why do we put Christmas trees in our house? What about Candy Canes? A fun short read about the history of our Christmas traditions.


"A Life Worth Living" || A book by Chuck Reinhold, a pioneer of Young Life. This is a short and amazing read. There are so many little-hidden nuggets in this book. Please buy this book, it will encourage your heart. 


"God WANTS YOU" || This is a great Message from Pat Goodman. Pat is one of the most gifted teachers I have ever listened too, this will be the best thing you listen to all break.


"Surrender" || My Pastor would close many of his sermons signing this song on stage. He wasn't a great singer (join the club) but it would always hit home to me. I pray that it would do the same for you this Holiday season.
