    I created the constitution, bylaws, and 21 articles on how to run a Catholic Young Adults Club for multiple Catholic Churches in Brevard County, Florida. It all started with one church, then six churches then all fourteen Catholic churches or fourteen parishes in the county of Brevard. Then I networked this club to all Orlando clubs and shared events to cover the entire central Florida area of Catholic and even non-catholic Churches. The multi-page document I used was later used to write the formal book used by the Catholic Church to run a young adult club. And I was the integral in running our large club for ten years. The Catholic Young Adults of Brevard covered the needs of all Catholic churches in the Brevard County and Orange County, and Seminole County too for ten years.
