Besides the seminars, games, and deep conversations, they all served the community also. One of the Youth Alive friendship groups visited a retirement home and held a concert in the backyard, which warmed the hearts of the elderly residents. Other groups went to the city center offering to exchange apples for cigarettes and inviting people for a Breathe-Free stop smoking program. Young adult leader Danetta from Swansea church in Wales who attended the Lithuanian Youth Alive Facilitator training, shared “this YA event was transformational for me.” She returned to her home church and launched Youth Alive with the support of her pastor and two other leaders.
