A youth group from Orlando, Florida is helping Mission Change keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful.

The students joined volunteers from the Albany non-profit to trim Crape Myrtle trees at the Albany airport Tuesday morning.

This is their fourth mission trip to Albany.

Their youth pastor is from Albany and believes in what Mission Change does here.

He wants his students to build relationships and impact lives outside of their city.

"The beauty of it is that we come and work here and serve here, but it gives our students different ways that they can take this back to the Orlando area and they can reach people," said Tim Dix youth pastor at community United Methodist church.

The youth group will be here the rest of the week working at a city park, the food bank, and the Salvation Army.
