About Indianapolis

In Indianapolis, YouthWorks partners with organizations working to alleviate the immediate impacts of poverty. Your group will primarily work in homeless shelters, food banks and community centers. Much of your work will focus on issues of hunger and homelessness as you support those who work on the front lines of these service organizations. In the evenings, your group will have the opportunity to explore downtown Indianapolis. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2013.

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.

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.
