About Pine Ridge

A strong relationship with Crazy Horse School is a defining characteristic of mission trips to Pine Ridge. Beyond being our housing site, the school invites YouthWorks to come alongside them with our Kids Club ministry and other service projects. Your group will serve through painting and simple work projects. In addition to serving, your students will see the rugged beauty of the Badlands, experience The Gathering beneath a 40-foot cross in South Dakota’s rolling prairie-lands, grapple with issues of poverty, take part in a community cookout and hear the history of the area. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 1999.

Serving in Pine Ridge

  • 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.

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.
