This Fall the BCRC has created a new program for seniors and youth in the Black community. BCRC’s Intergenerational Program is meant to brighten the lives of our seniors and reduce the social isolation many are facing at this time. As a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic, many seniors and youth have been experiencing social isolation and loneliness. To help resolve this issue, the BCRC created an Intergenerational program which will give Black youth and seniors the opportunity to connect while participating in fun engaging workshops online. We believe that both youth and seniors have a wealth of knowledge to share. We wish to increase young people’s understanding of aging issues, bring together generations and restore the role of elders as leaders in the Black community. These kinds of programs are extremely important because they allow all generations to learn new skills, help to reduce social isolation, creates space for important conversations to take place and removes negative stereotypes while allowing for new friendships to be made.
