About Lincoln County

The YouthWorks experience in Lincoln County revolves around relationships with incredible people. The majority of the projects are painting and beautification tasks. Your group will watch the Lincoln County Cloggers practice and will learn basic dance moves. You’ll also have a chance to relax and rejuvenate in the natural beauty of Upper Mud Creek Lake, a state park and local hangout spot. You’ll finish the week by connecting with new friends at the community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 1997.

  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.
  • Students will have the opportunity to work with each of the service sites during the week.


“I’ve not seen community exemplified as well as I have in Appalachia, and it especially shines bright in this time of devastation.”

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.
