About Leech Lake

Your group will meet a host of different community friends with unique backgrounds and rich stories about the Leech Lake Reservation and the Ojibwe culture. You’ll serve by assisting with home-improvement projects and leading a children’s program at a local park. In the evenings, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about Ojibwe history from a long-term community friend, participate in a scavenger hunt around Bemidji and share a meal with the community at a cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with the Cass Lake community since 2000.

Serving in Leech Lake

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work, or doing simple work projects.
  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.
  • Begin the week with an interactive experience learning about the Native culture
  • To best meet the needs of the community and build stronger relationships, some students will serve at Kids Club each day while others will rotate between Kids Club and Work Projects.

Quote

“I can’t explain the kind of life altering experiences throughout this mission trip. Being my very first mission trip I didn’t know what to expect, but the new outlook and amazing way God works his love into life is so powerful. I’m so thankful to have had this opportunity to meet awesome people and make memories that will last a life time.”
—Dakota, participant

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.
