WyldLife and Young Life in Snohomish Valley


Late 1970s

Young Life begins in Snohomish

Marilyn DeSoto starts Young Life at Snohomish High School, seeing the ministry grow exponentially as Tom Jonez and Ron Robertson join the leadership team. Over the course of the following decades, thousands of kids attend camps and local clubs.


local staff, volunteer leaders, & committee members

Our local leader team is vetted, background-checked, and trained to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness when engaging youth. A committee of community focused parents, teachers, and professionals oversee Snohomish Valley Young Life alongside regional, national and global Young Life leadership staff.
