Youth in Action began 22 years ago when Al Sammartino ( a CBTS member) organized a group of youth that wanted to assist the community. They sought to paint houses, build handicap ramps and perform general services for those in need. Al joined forces with Richard Schlitt, a local painter who also had a volunteer group and 35 youth painted their first house.

Following that first success, Al and Richard contacted other churches to support Youth in Action
by providing funding and volunteers. The program expended to 18 to 21 projects per year involving over 200 teens and 100 adults.
With the addition of this ministry to Serve’s ministries we anticipate our youths’ active involvement.
If you are interested in volunteering with Youth in Action please contact Al (772-231-7712 or alsamm01@gmail.com).
