About St. Louis

Your group will serve St. Louis in a variety of ways, often crossing racial and geographic lines. YouthWorks partners with a number of organizations to come alongside St. Louis’s homeless population, local children, and the elderly. You may find yourselves playing bingo, cooking meals, painting houses, shooting hoops, sorting clothes or spending time with community residents. You’ll also engage in discussions around race and poverty from a Christian mindset. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2002.

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.
