Perched on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, Bayou La Batre is a leader in the commercial fishing and seafood industry and known as the Seafood Capital of Alabama. Their seaside reputation has been reinforced by the History Channel’s show Big Shrimpin’, frequent references in the movie Forest Gump, and Disney’s 2005 launch of the pirate ship The Black Pearl from a local harbor. The peaceful shores of the Mississippi Sound offer a beautiful backdrop for this community steeped in heritage and tradition. Yet this community has also experienced its share of recent trouble. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina washed away much of the town and disrupted residents’ typically relaxed pace of life. And in 2010, the Gulf Oil Spill threatened the town’s livelihood. The community continues to persevere as it recovers from these disasters.

Community Experience

Alongside your students, you’ll encounter the resilient spirit of Bayou La Batre as you serve through home-improvement projects, elderly care and children’s ministries. Students will also experience Dauphin Island, worship at a local church and a tour of Bayou La Batre, including a cookout near the water. You’ll also encounter many community friends who have shared their community with YouthWorks staff, students and adult leaders for years. On the weeks of July 20–25 & July 27–Aug. 1, YouthWorks will partner with the community through “Work [Harder] Projects.” During these weeks all participants will serve through more labor-intensive projects for all four service days. This means there will be no Kids Club these weeks. For more information, visit www.youthworks.com/WorkHarderProjects

YouthWorks Relationship

Some of YouthWorks’ longest standing relationships are housed in Bayou La Batre. Since 1998, we’ve partnered with the community through work projects, kids programs and Hurricane Katrina relief. Our friends in Bayou La Batre continue to welcome us warmly year after year.
