About Detroit

In Detroit, your students’ service will support local ministries in need of volunteers. Your group will meet needs through service projects — you’ll serve with shelters, help local kids ministries and contribute to a variety of beautification projects, such as urban gardening and working to remove blight. The story of Detroit will come alive when you visit the Motown Museum, Belle Isle Park and the Detroit Historical Museum. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2016.

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.
