About The Carolinas

Communities in North and South Carolina like Wilmington, Myrtle Beach and Lumberton have been hit hard by hurricanes and tropical storms in recent years. Many had only just finished putting their homes back together from Hurricane Matthew when Hurricane Florence made landfall. Homes that were just recently restored were again flooded by a “1,000 year storm.” In an effort to provide the maximum support for these proud and historic communities, YouthWorks and Praying Pelican Mission have come together in a partnership with local ministries facing the challenge of rebuilding their communities yet again.

Our summer trips to the Carolinas will be a part of this partnership between YouthWorks and Praying Pelican Mission with a unique opportunity to serve under the guidance of unified resources. Scroll down to view and register for a summer trip to the Carolinas.

If you’re interested in going to the Carolinas outside of our summer months, Praying Pelican Mission has agreed to facilitate trips for YouthWorks groups year-round. CLICK HERE for information about non-summer trips.

Serving in The Carolinas

  • Partner with local churches and organizations to meet the on-going recovery efforts following Hurricane Florence
  • Because the recovery needs of the summer are yet to be determined, service will be decided closer to your service week. Students may serve all or part of the week working on homes or serving in ways that further the recovery process.

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.
