26 Years of Building Lasting Partnerships

If you want to serve local in 2021, we can customize a local mission trip for your group! Think of our Serve At Home experiences like a traditional YouthWorks mission trip without all of the travel. YouthWorks has actively partnered in 100+ communities across the U.S. to mobilize thousands of teenagers to serve. We’re thrilled to be able to bring our skills and abilities into your community, matching up the needs of local organizations with the vision you have for your group’s service experience. Your group will have an incredible experience embracing your community in a new way, and you’ll have the beginning of new lasting partnerships that you’ll be able to continue to serve well into the future.

Custom Service Experiences Could Include…

  • Children’s programming, Bible lessons, games, crafts, and reading activities.
  • Support for crisis resource centers, food shelves, and organizations meeting needs of those experiencing homelessness.
  • Painting, cleaning, helping with yard work and simple work projects.
  • Service experiences may include multiple options throughout the week.

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.
