Take time to visit the elderly in a nursing home and simply talk with them.  Ask the staff if there are a few resident’s who appreciate visitors and spend time learning about their lives, their faith, their families, etc.  Encourage the youth to learn as much as they can about them and spend little time talking about themselves if at all possible.  The elderly have so much to share and to learn from.

Be sure to do some follow-up afterwards asking about what they learned.
