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.

Serving in Benton Harbor

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • Students may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, or by assisting with painting, cleaning or simple repair projects.
  • Note that one of our service partners who works with children typically does not start their summer programming until the third week of June.

Did you know?

Benton Harbor is a “twin city” to St. Joseph. The racially and economically disparate towns are divided by the St. Joseph River.

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.
