About the Navajo Nation

Immerse your group in Navajo culture by learning from local community members, serving alongside work project partners and facilitating children’s programming. Each year our partnerships grow stronger as we work alongside our community friends to support their ongoing efforts to serve their neighbors. During your week in the Navajo Nation, learn about Navajo history from a long-term friend, experience the beauty of the high deserts and watch traditional native dances in a nearby town. At the end of the week, your group will host a cookout for the surrounding community. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2001.

Serving in the Navajo Nation

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other 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

“This last week I went on a missions trip to the Navajo Nation in Arizona. It was filled with God, hard-working students and hearts that wanted to serve. I learned about the importance of putting others above myself. And I learned that when things go wrong God is still good. Thank you everyone that prayed for us and thank you to my fellow students for making it an amazing trip.”

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.
