Transcript for Seniors going back to school
Finally tonight here, America strong. It's that time of year. Back to school, but in one community, some of the older students suddenly young again. Reporter: The image being shared tonight. Hand in hand, a snapshot already of a new school year. A new program spanning generations, bringing them together. A program for children, preschool, elementary school, where they are teamed up with the seniors. Some are grandparents. Not their own, but still hoping to share the day with them. Today that center sending us a message. Hi, David. I'm layny. And nim Chelsea. Reporter: They run the Bethlehem center. Weld like to show you around. Reporter: They catch that balloon with James. Judith singing and making music with her little band mates. The children taken by their new friends. Going on walks, they have all learned a lesson about the power of bringing generations together. Seeing the smiles and interactions between the kids and elders, both age groups have so much to offer each other. Reporter: And the children have their favorite part to the day. Jaden likes sharing the food. This girl was asked what she likes most about one of her new friends. Just to hug her. Reporter: And tonight, at that center, they tell us they can already see the transformations. I can't wait to see what the future holds. The bond formed already. We need more of it. Thanks for watching here on a Tuesday night. Stay with us this week for this hurricane. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow.
