Perform service while learning how to update and maintain a home.
Invite an experienced painter to demonstrate and teach the skill of house painting. Under the direction of the bishop, select a home of someone in need and arrange for the youth and advisers to paint a room, fence, wall, or other area. Consider discussing these questions: How did it feel to provide service? How will knowing how to paint help me become self-reliant? What are some of the connections between painting and gospel principles? Encourage the youth to participate in a painting project with their families.
