Many students spend their summer break soaking in rays at the beach or lounging around the house, some 174 middle & high school-age students will be hard at work on a one week-long community service project in Henderson, KY, June 17-21, 2019.

During the week, the students will be working on a variety of assignments that range from painting a house, putting on siding, distributing food to the homeless, constructing wheelchair ramps and various other projects to serve Henderson.

The students & adults who participate in World Changers have a desire to serve and grow in their ability to meet the needs of communities. World Changers participants learn what serving others really means throughout the week.

Working in this city is a way to demonstrate that teens can get out of their comfort zone, work hard and help others.

Students traveling with their churches and youth groups pay on average $280 as well as all their travel to take part in this week.

The students will be working with a variety of churches throughout Henderson and staying at South Middle School. This summer, thousands of student and adult volunteers are registered to participate in dozens of World Changers projects across the United States & Puerto Rico. Sponsored by LifeWay Christian Resources in Nashville, TN, World Changers is serving in more than 40 cities in the US & Puerto Rico this summer.
