About Portland

Your group will listen and learn from local leaders and service partners about the issues Portlanders face, including struggles of homelessness, gentrification, historic and current racism, and concern over environmental issues. Your group will serve existing social service organizations and participate in the good work these organizations are doing to serve vulnerable populations of the city. In the evenings, your group will experience an outdoor adventure at Multnomah Falls, learn from a cultural speaker about social issues in the city, explore various features of Portland and help host a community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2018.

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.
