About Eastern Shore

On the Eastern Shore, your group will have the opportunity both to serve and to learn from those who love this community. Your group will potentially help complete work projects, help serve in a local food bank, visit with nursing home residents and spend time with adults with disabilities. You’ll also serve at Kids Club, which is a unique experience on the Shore, as most of the kids who come are the children of Hispanic immigrants working in the community. In the evenings, you’ll get to enjoy much of the town’s beauty — both in the natural surroundings and in its people. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2003.

Serving in Eastern Shore

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects
  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.
  • During the week, students may serve at one or more of the service options.
  • Please bring an additional $20 per vehicle to pay for parking at one of the evening activities

Quote

“This was one of the best experiences of my life. I’ve never felt closer to God and my family in Christ. I would go back any day to spend time with the community and the friends I made.”

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.
