Most young life boys have a certain brand that has evolved over the years to be uniquely YL. Goodbye, the days of the preppy boy in vineyard vines. Hello, the edgy Christian who is chasing after the Lord in ministry and can count on multiple hands the number of young life camps he has been to. Although everyone is unique and fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14), they seem to have a certain brand that I could pick out anywhere. So let's take a look at the 26 things that make up a young life boy.
1. Small mustache
4. A Thicc Study Bible
Biiiiiig devo guy.
5. Carrying a backpack everywhere
Only the most holy people carry their backpack around with them all day. Sorry not sorry.
6. Flat top hat
He probably got it from a camp store.
7. A girlfriend
Every YL boy is probably in a committed relationship on the path towards marriage. Bonus points if she is insta famous.
8. ripped jeans
9. A "W.W.J.D" bracelet
He would love first.

Because if Jesus Bieber reads it, then so will I.
11. Tickets to Passion

19. An animal t-shirt
21. Cotopaxi or Patagonia backpack
