Have your group members help organize and/or lead a retreat for age groups younger than them in the parish. This could be helping with the parishes VBS (Vacation Bible School) program in the summer or putting on the First Communion Retreat. If your city or Diocese has programs like SEARCH or TEC as well, these are great opportunities for youth to be on a lead where they are helping rather than being participants.
