A good friend of mine Jacob Eckeberger works for YouthWorks and had produced a fantastic guidebook called “Ideas to Impact” to help you workers make their ideas become reality.
“The strategy in this book is an adaptation of what our teams use to develop and implement their ideas for creating healthy mission trip experiences for thousands of teenagers every year.” by Jacob Eckeberger
It’s a fantastic little ebook and they are giving it away for free. You can download it right here but I would also encourage you to check out YouthWorks. They have a ton of resources and if you want to plan a youth mission trips anywhere in the US you need to talk to them. Here is a little bit about who they are and what they are all about.
“YouthWorks provides Christ-centered mission trips for more than 20,000 teenagers and adult leaders in over 45 communities across the U.S. and beyond. We believe that these kinds of mission trip experiences positively impact the communities we partner with, the teenagers who are stretched and challenged through a week of service, and the adult leaders who build mission trips into the ongoing discipleship of their teenagers. Our staff has been creating mission trip experiences for teenagers and adult leaders for more than 20 years, and in that time, the Holy Spirit has led us to be about these things”
