Bridging Generations with One Change

Our program titled “Bridging Generations” is a project that was created in September 2015 with the vision of inspiring the world by promoting intergenerational relationships. We want to bring together the elderly and youth for the purpose of learning with and from each other through therapeutic recreation, education, and social activities.

The purpose of our program is to improve the health and social wellness of those we serve, while developing skills, establishing values, and providing a sense of empowerment.
