Equipping Youth for Fullness of Life.

"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."  - Jesus (John 10:10)



YouthWorks-Detroit equips youth to love God and others through a life of Christian service and leadership.
We serve as a bridge, uniting Christians from different cultures and traditions.

  • Help youth to hear God’s call, apply God’s wisdom, and to embrace His plan for their lives.

Relationship with others

  • Inspire youth to live lives of generosity and service to others.
  • Assist youth in strengthening and renewing relationships in their families.
  • Introduce youth to mentors committed to their long-term success.
  • Mobilize youth to reach out to peers and youth of different ages with the love of Christ.

Growing in life skills
