Hometown Trips - $199

We’ll come to you! Serve and make a difference this summer in your local community. We will set up service opportunities, offer programming and other staff support.

Why Hometown Trips?

Your group will meet real needs of people in your community. Hometown Trips are for groups of 30 or more, ages middle school & up so invite parents, grandparents, college students or church leaders to join you. The trip can also include participants from neighboring churches in your local area.

You’ll discover new opportunities to make an ongoing impact in your own community that could continue after your trip

Get connected with our partners in your community or a neighboring city or town to take part in their ongoing efforts to make your hometown a place of transformation

Save time and money by eliminating travel

YouthWorks Will Come To Your Neighborhood

Service Opportunities

Service Opportunities

YouthWorks will team up with our local partners in your local neighborhood or neighboring city or town to design service opportunities for your group based on real needs of the community. Hometown Trips will broaden the perspectives of your students, ignite passions for their community, and expose possibilities to do God’s work in their own backyard to make lasting change.



YouthWorks will provide programming each morning before service that will engage your group in the importance of serving your own community. Students will also participate in end of day programming to help them process their experiences.

Next Steps for Hometown Trips

  1. Fill out the form
  2. A team member will then reach out to you via email to schedule a call with a Mission Trip Associate to hear more about your desires and what it could potentially look like to run a mission trip for you in your community. 
  3. After the conversation with the Mission Trip Associate, we’ll need to do diligence around the safety for your group, the community you want to serve, our staff, and if we have the go-ahead from local, state, and federal guidelines to host the trip.
  4. In light of safety around concerns with COVID-19, we would make a final decision about being able to host your trip 30 days prior to the start of the trip.
