Who We Are


As specialists in community-based youth work, Lifeteams trains young adults to step into the lives of young people who need to see Jesus incarnated in their world. While living for 8.5 months within a community of others who share the same heart, students learn through an experience-based cycle of  hearing, doing, and reflecting. We guarantee that the Lifeteams OnSite experience will stretch you beyond what you can imagine and engage you in a journey that will continue far beyond this year.

As a program of Greater Vancouver Youth Unlimited, Lifeteams draws on the skills and experience of over forty dedicated youth workers who are building relationships with marginalized youth through a variety of cutting edge youth programs around the Vancouver area. Youth Unlimited Vancouver is part of Youth For Christ International – an organization that is involved with youth in over 100 countries around the world. There are almost 2,000 full-time staff and over 22,000 part-time staff and volunteers working together around the world for Youth for Christ.

In Canada, Youth For Christ is active in over 90 cities and towns. Our ministry focuses on responsible, effective, and culturally sensitive engagement with youth by communicating in caring ways that are relevant to this generation.
