The sweltering heat this week did not wilt the spirits of the young people with YouthWorks-Detroit who cleaned up around properties owned by Southwest Solutions. The YouthWorks employees and staff cleared lots of trash and weeds, cut overgrown grass and vines, tended to gardens, trimmed trees, and spruced up the properties. The young people are paid for their work, but all of them emphasize that their primary motivation is to better the community and act on their spiritual convictions of compassion and fellowship. YouthWorks is a Christian-based organization that brings together youth from many different cultures.
