About Houston

Houstonians have been resilient throughout the devastation and rebuilding from Hurricane Harvey. Your group will be able to continue with that recovery work while also serving alongside those doing long-term development work in Greater Houston. Service may include home repair projects, serving those experiencing homelessness, learning from immigrants who are becoming urban farmers, and serving the elderly. In the evenings, you’ll get to explore downtown Houston, engage in learning about immigration and multiculturalism in Houston, enjoy an options night to explore the city, and end the week with a cookout celebration. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2018.

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.
