About Quad Cities

Your group will have the opportunity to serve in various parts of the Quad Cities, partnering with organizations that deeply care about their community. Service opportunities include assisting with local youth programming, engaging with adults who have disabilities, and meeting basic needs through food pantries, community gardens, and clothing giveaways. Learn about the strengths and struggles of this area by hearing from a community speaker. Your group will also have the chance to relax at a local waterpark. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2004.

Please note: All information regarding service and community engagement activities are subject to change. We are actively working to identify community engagement and service opportunities in consideration of COVID.

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.
