About Charleston

During a week in Charleston, your group will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the people, history and culture of this city. Serve and build relationships with a variety of people in Charleston through the Boys & Girls Club, Union Mission, Covenant House and local senior centers. You may also get to spend time with local children at Outrageous Sports Camp. During the evenings, worship with a local congregation and feast with friends old and new at a community potluck, which almost always includes a famous homemade cobbler!

Serving in Charleston

  • Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.

    Students may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program or elder care facility.
  • Plan and facilitate sports-based programming for community youth.
  • Most students will serve at each service site during part of the week. Those who serve with the sports program will remain all week.

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.
