About Kansas City

In Kansas City, your group will serve with local organizations on both sides of the state line that strive to provide basic needs for community members. Serve residents of all ages through maintaining community gardens, assisting at local community kitchens and food pantries, and working alongside of organizations that care for the basic needs of their neighbors. In the evenings, engage with a long term friend of YouthWorks who will share more about the neighborhoods we serve. Experience the sites and history of the city through a scavenger hunt and time on your own to enjoy local attractions and some great BBQ! Youthworks has partnered with this community since 2008.

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.

Quote

“Just home from my first mission trip to Kansas City! So excited about what is to come after a week of laughter, tears, singalongs, sweat and a lot of being a part of what God is doing in the city. Couldn’t have asked for a better week and so looking forward to what God has in store!”

—Martin, trip leader

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.
