Intergenerational

Intergenerational Programs
(Seniors and Students Enjoying Activities of Mutual Interest)
 

The Intergenerational Program provides opportunities for CB55+ members and the school students to participate in activities of mutual interest.  

We are currently in the process of setting up the program for this Fall and are looking for volunteers.  No previous experience is required other than a desire to work with the children.  You will be working with other experienced members of CB55+, so not on your own.
The dates that have been determined are Fridays, November 3rd and 10th and December 1st and 8th. The program runs from 11:15 until 11:50 am.  The IG activities that have been identified for the Fall include:
Cooking
Lego
Board Games
Crafts
Drama
Knitting  

If you require any further information about the Intergenerational Activities, please contact Diane Cowden at d.cowden@me.com.

 

Support a Reader, coordinated by Von Bishop, pairs CB55+ members with students for reading.  If you would like more information about this program and how you can volunteer for it, please contact Von Bishop at vonandjane@shaw.ca or by phone at 250-477-6206.

 

Pickle Ball Clinics, coordinated by Ted Dobie, are for grades 4 – 5 in their PE time.  Volunteers are members of the Pickle Ball Group.

 

IG Photography, coordinated by Brent Carberry.  iPhoto sessions are set to begin with the Grade 4 and 5 classes at the school.  Brent Carbery will again be organizing things and now needs to enlist a number of volunteers in order to start as soon as possible.  There will be 6 sessions with each group/class and this year we are hoping to run two sessions concurrently in the fall.  One class will be on Tuesday afternoons, from 1:30 – 2:40 pm. and the other will take place on Thursday mornings from 9:00 – 10:15 am.  There is no need to be an expert in any way – we always learn along with the students.

Please contact Brent at brentjcarbery@gmail.com or 250-893-5879 if you are interested in helping or would like more information.

 

Please help support our intergenerational programs by volunteering to help.  It is not a lot of time and you will reap many rewards and find the children delightful and grateful.
