Improving our community

  • Youth service activity

Purpose

Serve the community and bless the lives of those who live there.

Description

Work with people in the community to identify needs that the youth could help meet. Youth could meet with community leaders, local government officials, or attend a community event such as a city council meeting. Organize a service project to meet community needs. Some possibilities include beautifying parks or public places, reading to schoolchildren, visiting patients in a hospital, organizing a food drive or blood drive, and so on. If necessary, plan for ongoing maintenance. Discuss the questions: What is our responsibility in our community? Why do we serve? (See Mosiah 2:17.)
