Final plans are in the works for St. John’s 9th Annual “Youth B.E.A.T.” week of service, coming up June 6-10, 2022. A committee of staff and lay leaders has been hard at work coordinating with local community service agencies, to identify service opportunities for the more than 80 local youth who will be taking part in this summer’s camp.
Earlier this month, Caroline Devitt shared the background on Youth B.E.A.T. in Q&A form with an electronic publication that is distributed throughout the Episcopal Diocese of Florida. We invite you to learn more about this long-running week of service, that was miraculously able to sustain its mission throughout the pandemic. This year, we are excited that Youth B.E.A.T. will return to its traditional format, and work alongside local agencies to serve the Tallahassee community in better and better ways than ever before!
