Humanitarian service

Purpose

Serve those in need.

Description

Find a group that assists those in need. This could be a local church or community organization that provides relief or help to the poor and needy (such as a bishops’ storehouse, a homeless shelter, or an orphanage), or it could be an organization that gives help throughout the world. If it is a local group, ask those in charge to give you a tour and explain what they do to help people in need. Find out what projects the youth can help with, and organize a service project.  Consider how each ward or unit could be invited to help in a specific way. At the end of the project, hold a testimony meeting for youth to share their feelings about the experience and how we can be more like Christ in our service.
