About Benton Harbor

During a week in Benton Harbor, your group will partner with local organizations to serve the city across age and racial divides. In the evenings, your group will tour the community and learn about the fine arts revitalization in Benton Harbor from a community friend. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience local BBQ, visit a Lake Michigan beach, and explore Benton Harbor’s sister city, St. Joseph. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2000.

Please note: All information regarding service and community engagement activities are subject to change. We are actively working to identify community engagement and service opportunities in consideration of COVID.

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.
