Community Types

Small Urban

Caught between the rush of the city and the slower pace of small towns, these sites are often the business centers of their areas. You can expect a larger city that feels like a small town, or a small town that has urban characteristics. YouthWorks’ ministry in these communities is as diverse as the populations. You may serve through a kids program, completing basic work projects or partnering with local organizations.

Large Urban

Larger urban settings are portrayed by fast-paced living, cultural and economic diversity, and the presence of smaller communities within a larger context. While sports stadiums and tourist traps are part of the culture, you’ll experience the city in a different way as you partner with organizations anchored in these communities. You may serve at a soup kitchen, organize at a donation center, minister with children or fellowship with the elderly.

Small Town

These sites are found along the coast, resting on the prairie and nestled among mountains. Close-knit relationships and a less-hurried lifestyle are benchmarks of small town living. In this setting, YouthWorks serves through basic work projects, kids programming and partnering with existing service organizations, such as nursing homes and food shelves.
