About the Twin Cities

In the Twin Cities, you and your group will work with a variety of organizations that are actively seeking the good of Twin Cities’ residents. You will get to join these summer kids’ programs, senior citizen centers, and shelters in making a positive impact in the community. During your trip you will have the opportunity to explore Minneapolis and St. Paul, check out the Minnesota History Center, and host a community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with Minneapolis since 1996 and with St. Paul since 2009.

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.
