About Milwaukee

You’ll have the opportunity to serve alongside some great organizations that are working to support the Milwaukee community. These organizations include food pantries, soup kitchens, local gardens, and intergenerational care centers. Many of these organizations are interconnected in the process of reducing food insecurity throughout the community. In the evenings you’ll participate in a local worship service, prepare and serve a community meal, go to the beach of Lake Michigan, and hear from a community friend who works with teenagers and adults that grew up in the inner city. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 1999.

Serving in Milwaukee

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • Students may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program or elder care facility.

Quote

“Working with Youthworks has been a great experience so far. Victory Garden Initiative is in a period of rapid growth, and having consistent help each week is helping us to grow more food than ever before.”

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.
