One of ABLE’s key objectives is to get young people involved in valuable service projects – whether in the local community or in under-developed countries. Most are in middle school or higher grades. There are very active groups in Lexington and Austin.
Many of the international missions include ABLE Youth (with adults, of course). Domestically, the young people engage in a wide variety of activities, from helping Military Missions prepare packages to send to American military members serving overseas, to putting together “goodie” bags for senior citizens for the holidays, to helping with community gardens, to helping low-income senior citizens with landscaping problems…
The list is really quite long and seems to change every month. Anyone interested in participating can contact us in Lexington or Austin and we’ll connect you with the project leaders.
These are just a few of the photos of ABLE Youth in action:
