About Kansas City

In Kansas City, your group will serve on both sides of the state line with organizations who provide basic needs for community members. Your group will serve residents through maintaining community gardens, assisting at local community kitchens, and food pantries. In the evenings, your group will learn more about the different neighborhoods in KC from a longtime friend of YW. You’ll also experience the sites and history of the city through various activities and time on your own. 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.

Serving in Kansas City

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • During the week, students may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, or soup kitchen.
  • Groups have the option one night to eat at one of Kansas City's famous BBQ spots.
  • We begin the day 1 hour later on Thursday.

    Please note that showers are located off-site and will be visited in the late afternoon.

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.
