About Cheyenne River

During the week, your group will have the opportunity to serve through participating in children’s programs, painting homes and gardening. Students will partner with local organizations already serving the Lakota people. YouthWorks participants may have the chance to serve with the Mustard Seed, helping to prepare and serve a meal to community members. In the evenings, your group will have the opportunity to hear from tribe elders about Lakota culture, hike and explore Eagle Butte, and share a community cookout with new friends — as many as 200 local residents might attend! YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2011.

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.
