YouthWorks facilitates week-long, Christ-centered mission trips for middle school and high school students, families and churches.
YouthWorks is a youth ministry organization and a mission organization. We’ve been taking churches on mission trips for more than18 years and designed those trips to create opportunities for participants to learn and experience more about Jesus’ love through service in great communities. Every summer more than 30,000 youth join us at our mission sites scattered across the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. www.youthworks.com
Founded in 1994, YouthWorks has organized some 9,000 mission trips for more than 470,000 participants—students, youth workers and pastors—in 35 states and 4 Canadian provinces for more than 13,000 churches impacting thousands of communities in Jesus’ name.
“YouthWorks is a well-established ministry that covers all the bases that a trip leader may be concerned about- fundraising ideas, preparing students to have a heart of service, etc.” –Audra Kirch, River of God
“It is hard to find words to explain what occurred on our trip. God moved in ways that I have never experienced in my 20+ mission trips. Everything about the trip was amazing.” –Bekah Miller, Cornerstone Church
“YouthWorks enabled my small church to experience a large group mission trip. It’s great for my kids to meet new people from different traditions.” –Brent Liechty, Pathway Community Church
“After a YouthWorks mission trip: “Our youth said, ‘We’ve never known that feeling like this was even possible. We felt like we were in God’s presence.’” –John Fraser, Lutheran Church of the Atonement
