Purpose: That the people of age and experience called seniors be appreciated for their value, experience and knowledge and to be celebrated for what they can contribute to society.
No more waste in throwing away these valuable resources. We can help them to teach us their knowledge and experience and to share their lives with children and each other.
Goals: For this major section of our communities to experience internal care of worth and as a source of contribution to life, themselves and others. To experience self-appreciation, to stop the devaluation of experience, to celebrate "golden resources" and to accelerate the potential of others by speaking, teaching and otherwise contributing to society, this magnifies our resources.
Methods: Begin with sharing what they have done in life that works, their attitudes and implementation of ideas. Pair them with children of similar interests. They together work out a game plan for a project. Bring in guest speakers talented in their fields. Fundraising - a national essay contest with a fee to enter and suggest how these goals can be accomplished. There will be WINNERS in the contest judged for best ideas with criteria.
Some of these ideas will be supported by the organisation that takes this project on. The best ideas will be put in a book to be shared with entities wishing to form communities who will nurture and put to use these ideas.
Results: The "Golden Resources" of our society learn to love themselves and appreciate their value, to see their contribution as positive and worthwhile. This will bring out each others' talent and skills and share them with each other and with children.
Children will benefit from the expertise and learn talents they would otherwise not be aware of, see new possibilities for careers and learn management skills from tried and true experiences.
All will learn social skills by working with each other for common goals while broadening their life experience.

There are many people doing beautiful things that I want to show and perhaps say what I find important in what they are doing. I wish to promote these people and their talents in my blog. Personal empowerment is the key to change. ONE person can make a difference. To believe in oneself is the key to tapping into ones' creativity.
