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.
WORKSHOPS & ACTIVITIES
Our workshops will engage seniors and youth in a new exciting way!
We provide our participants with both informational and recreational workshops to stay physically active and well informed on the resources needed the most.
All of our workshops are free and are hosted online through Zoom.
If you are a senior (55+)looking for a new experience, our workshops are for you!
