Young Life has been in the Latin America/Caribbean division since 1966 when our work began in Brazil. Over the years of work, Young Life in Latin America and the Caribbean has expanded to 22 countries and 7 regions.We are continuing to develop a strong network of leaders and both in country and US committees that will serve within each county. With a strong support team of adults focused on these countries, we can continue the Young Life legacy in Latin America and the Caribbean. 

Our vision remains to serve as a lifeline for kids, one kid at a time. ​​​​​​​​​​

We plan to double our ministry twice in six years by developing excellent staff and volunteers who are passionate about reaching teenagers for Jesus Christ. This means going from reaching 32,514 kids per year in 2009 to reaching more than 126,000 per year by 2016. We will do this by building healthy and sustainable ministry systems that will remain vibrant for decades. ​

We have developed 7 regions: 
- Mexico - 
- Central America - 
 - Andes Mountain Region (Peru, Argentina, Paraguay, Chile) - 
- Tri-Colores Region (Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador) - 
- Brazil - 
- Western Caribbean​ -
- Easter Caribbean -
