About Savannah

Your group will come alongside existing local ministries and organizations to meet on-going needs; assisting with home repair projects, helping with youth programming at a local community center, serving the homeless and spending time with the elderly. During the evenings, you’ll tour the First African Baptist Church and learn about their involvement in the underground railroad, go swimming at Tybee Island, take a stroll by the Savannah River and celebrate your week with new friends. YouthWorks has been serving in this community since 2000.

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.
