Why College Trips with YouthWorks?​

25+ Years of Successful Service Trips

YouthWorks has been developing authentic, long-lasting relationships in 70+ communities across the US. We have come alongside leaders who truly know their community and that have invited YW and our participants to be a part of their ongoing missions.

Respectful Service

YouthWorks prioritizes listening to our communities, learning from their leadership and designing our trips to meet felt needs identified to us by key stakeholders in each community.

Let YouthWorks plan it for you.

We understand the challenges to research, plan and organize while still providing care for and attending to regular responsibilities. Let us help plan a trip for you. Joining YouthWorks for a week of service plugs you into the bigger story of the Gospel and the work already happening in these communities.

We love college students.

Our mission hinges on the engagement of young adults as summer staff. We’ve trained, equipped, developed and mobilized thousands of college age students. College and young adult staff have been an integral part of the work that we do. We believe they are a vital part of the work that God is doing in the world as we aim to create experiences that broaden perspectives, ignite passions, expose possibilities and inspire pursuits.
