About Lake Traverse

One of the most unique partnerships YouthWorks is developing in Lake Traverse is with the old middle school in the middle of town, which is being converted into a community education and activity center. Your group will help facilitate children’s programming at this building, serve the residents in local assisted living facilities/nursing homes and help out with other work projects in the community. You’ll learn about Dakota culture from a community friend, explore a state park that is spiritually significant to the local tribe, and join the community for a cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2005.

Serving in Lake Traverse

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects.
  • Partner with local assisted living homes.
  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.

Quote

“Year after year, God uses these trips to share the love of Christ with people and communities through humble partnership and mutual respect.”

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.
