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 and participating in a prayer walk. Your group will also have the chance to relax at a local waterpark and share a meal with community friends at a cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2004.

Serving in Quad Cities

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • Partner with local organizations to serve community children.
  • During the week, students may serve at one or more of the service opportunities.
  • Groups will need to plan for an additional $5 per person cost to enter the waterpark.

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.
