About Philadelphia

During a trip to Philadelphia, your group will serve with urban gardening initiatives, help with kids summer programs, and witness the immense pride of Philadelphia’s residents. It’s almost impossible to serve in this community without seeing the impact of hunger. Whether it’s weeding at an urban garden, packing boxes at a food distribution center, or helping load or unload food deliveries to food pantries, you’ll be a part of feeding the city. In the evenings, run up the “Rocky Steps” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, explore Old City, attend a church service and spend time at a community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2004.

Serving in Philadelphia

  • Participate in a fully integrated service and learning experience where students not only assist with needs but also understand the causes and outcomes of food insecurity facing the community.

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.
