About Harrisburg

In Harrisburg, your group will serve alongside the community in various community development efforts that are working to improve the life of its residents. You will have the opportunity to serve with local children’s programs, community gardens and assist neighborhood associations with small home repair, community beautification and cleanup projects. In the evenings, you’ll visit Hershey’s Chocolate World for a chocolate tour, attend a youth service at a local church and enjoy the beauty of Harrisburg alongside friends you make during the week. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2010.

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 Harrisburg

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects.
  • During the week, students may serve at one or more of the service options.

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.
