The purpose of this essay is to examine how the leaders of Young Life at UNC Charlotteand the Cabarrus County high schools engage with literacy in order to teach the word of God toyoung adults and teenagers. In order to achieve this I will be observing the Young Life campaigngroup at UNC Charlotte; as well as traveling to different Club meetings that happen all aroundCabarrus County. Each high school has different leaders so it is important for me to engage andobserve more than one. By the end of my ethnography research I not only plan to learn howliteracy influences Young Life leaders, but I also hope to learn for myself what it will take to oneday become a Young Life leader in my community.Brief Outline:I.
