Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/06/2016 -- This summer, through Youth Unlimited's week-long, service-oriented SERVE mission trips, 39,032 hours of service were given throughout 26 different communities around the U.S. and Canada.
"SERVE is an incredible opportunity to partner with local churches and help them better connect with their surrounding communities. It is an intentional way to show communities that they are loved, and to show the students they can be involved in a transformative work that is bigger than themselves," said Jeff Kruithof, Executive Director of Youth Unlimited.
Youth Unlimited provides these youth mission opportunities to help teens connect with Christ, the church and communities and to learn life lessons they can take with them into adulthood. What makes SERVE unique, however, is that each youth service trip is hosted and conducted by a local church, allowing congregations in each community to better meet the needs of people in their own backyards.
2017 summer service trip locations have just been announced with over 30 sites set to host students from across North America. Youth Unlimited is eagerly anticipating the great impact these programs will make next summer.
