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.
About Blue Ridge Mountains, NC
Your group will experience the great beauty of both people and nature in the scenic small town of Taylorsville, North Carolina. By participating in work projects, running a Kids Club, helping at a local nutrition program and supporting a few other ministries, you’ll make connections with the people of the area while addressing some significant needs. In the evenings, your group will visit a cowboy church, experience the thrill of a homemade water park, hike to the top of Lowe’s Lookout and partake in a community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2006.
