About Benton Harbor

During a week in Benton Harbor, your group will partner with local organizations to serve the city’s youngest and oldest residents. You’ll also assist with yard work and paint homes. In the evenings, your group will tour Water Street Glassworks and learn about the fine arts community in Benton Harbor, experience local BBQ and visit the Lake Michigan beach. You’ll learn more about the community through a scavenger hunt, you’ll visit a local hip-hop dance group that gives kids in the community a positive outlet and you’ll hear the story of Benton Harbor from a community friend.

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.
