Quote

“I am so incredibly blessed to have attended my fourth and last YouthWorks mission trip. This trip was like no other trip I’ve gone on before. I’ve met people and created unbreakable bonds that will last a lifetime. I’m so, so grateful that I have been able to meet all of the beautiful people that I encountered on my journey. Thank you to everyone who has made this trip one to remember.”

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.
