About Rutland

Much of the service work your group will do in Rutland includes the outdoors and getting close to the dirt. Whether you’re helping develop and maintain trails at Pine Hills Park, serving with the Parks and Recreation Department staff or weeding in a community garden, you’ll get to experience the great beauty of the Green Mountain state. Participants may also have the opportunity to serve through simple work projects, visit with some of Rutland’s elderly residents or help other local organizations. In the evenings, you’ll have the chance to experience some unique activities, including indoor rock climbing, hiking and swimming. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2007.

Serving in Rutland

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects.
  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.
  • During the week, students may serve at one or more of the service options.

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.
