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 get to hear from community friends and partners about the strengths, struggles, and history of this large urban area. You will also be able to visit some beautiful urban parks and prepare and serve a community meal in both Minneapolis and St. Paul. 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.
