Learning Across Ages Guide & Tablet Class
This summer, MFRC has been growing and establish our intergenerational programs. From poetry writing to tablet classes, our seniors and children have connected with each other. For many, it is the children first time to interact with seniors.
These programs are opportunities for everyone to learn from each other, no matter what the age difference is.
If you are interested in learning how to start your own intergenrational program, look at our resource guide: Learning Across Ages
Malvern Family Resource Centre is committed to sharing best practices and learning opportunities to enhance programming quality for residents in our community. Building on the successes of our own endeavours to encourage intergenerational relationships and an age‐friendly community in Malvern, our seniors department created this program guide to assist other community agencies, seniors groups, schools, and seniors’ residences in planning and implementing their own intergenerational programs. The guide contains information and resources developed by MFRC staff and volunteers for the Learning Across Ages program implemented between September 2016 and March 2017. Although not comprehensive of all intergenerational programming, this guide will attempt to outline fundamental components of this project as well as share best practices and learning opportunities.
This week, we were featured on CBC News on our Tablet Class.
