Celebrating the People Behind Innovative New Intergenerational Engagement Opportunities

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we acknowledge our team of enthusiastic and passionate women (and one man who is equally dedicated to our work) collaborating to make intergenerational connections a priority in our community.

Over the next four years we are developing demonstration sites of new and best practices for intergenerational programming as a part of licensed early learning and care in three unique settings: on-campus beside an age-in-place residence, neighbourhood based in collaboration with a Trinity Anglican Church congregation and co-located at Perley Health as part of a new model providing opportunities for children and seniors to connect naturally through caring, responsive interactions as part of their daily routines.

Networking is our Number One asset in realizing this project. This collective of committed partners and collaborators each bring their own unique strengths; we are learning from each other and together.  

We are full of gratitude knowing children, grandfriends, staff, family and friends enjoy their time together inspiring conversations are happening across Canada.
