About Bayou La Batre

Your group will encounter the resilient spirit of Bayou La Batre as you serve through home improvement projects, elder care and children’s ministries. In the evenings, you’ll experience Dauphin Island, a worship service at Gospel Way, a tour of Bayou La Batre and a cookout near the water. You’ll also encounter many community friends who have shared their community with YouthWorks staff, students and adult leaders for years. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 1998.

We teenagers + We communities

Teenagers need to encounter Jesus outside their normal context to deepen their faith and broaden their perspectives. Plus, communities need to be valued—not as mere recipients but as partners who have stories worth sharing in.

When we bring the two together, incredible things happen.
