About Cortez

In Cortez, your group will have the opportunity to serve in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. As you immerse yourself in the culture of this community, your group will participate in a variety of work projects and facilitate a Kids Club. You’ll visit Mesa Verde National Park and learn more about the history of the community. You’ll also meet Shirley, a community friend who teaches about the influence of native culture in Cortez, shares about her family’s work of making and selling horsehair pottery, and makes fry bread for groups to try. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2001.

Serving in Cortez

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects.
  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.
  • Students will have the opportunity to participate with each of the service sites during the 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.
