America 's teenagers and older adults are two seemingly diverse populations, yet they have many things in common. They share a need to make positive contributions to their society, they need to be wanted and appreciated for their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm, and both groups are active contributors to the volunteer community. Now Camp Fire, the national youth organization, is involving both of these groups in an innovative project that may have implications for other service providers.
