About Rapid City

In Rapid City, we partner with several local service agencies and work with children and the elderly. One of the most interesting organizations we work with is Black Hills Works, a progressive and adaptive center for mentally and physically challenged adults in Rapid City. Their center provides job training, paid work, practical life classes and other services. Groups will be able to see Mount Rushmore, but they’ll also learn about other aspects of Rapid City, such as the importance of the Black Hills to the Lakota. You’ll also participate in the largest cookout in our Western region. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 1999.

Serving in Rapid City

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • Students may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program or elder care facility.
  • You'll have the option of visiting Mount Rushmore or the Crazy Horse Memorial for an additional per-vehicle cost.

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.”
—Rachael, participant

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.
