Young Life rejected by Duke student government

The Duke University Student Government Senate refused Sept. 11 to recognize Young Life as an official campus group, the independent student paper The Chronicle reported.

Young Life, which describes itself as a ministry working to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in faith, is bound by the group’s national sexual misconduct policy, a student told The Chronicle.  

The policy states that “persons who engage in sexual misconduct or who practice a homosexual lifestyle” are “not to serve as staff or volunteers in the mission and work of Young Life.”

Young Life has chapters in middle schools, high schools and colleges in all 50 states and more than 90 countries, according to (BP)
