Typical Day – YWx Trips

YWx trips are customizable to fit your specific needs, so a typical day can vary from group to group. In general, we will schedule your service days from 9-3, leaving the early morning, afternoon and evening to plan what is best for your group.

Below is what a typical day looks like on a YouthWorks traditional trip. Feel free to use this as a place to start as you build your YWx trip.
