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.  

Intergenerational request for volunteers:

For four weeks in February and March the intergenerational program will pair club members with students from the school for half hour activity sessions.  Our last two session will be on March 2nd and 9th.  In the fall, we’d like to include a macrame group and other activities, such as drama, as well as the usual activities.  If this rewarding volunteer opportunity is something you would enjoy, please contact Pat Ball at pball@shaw.ca.  All sessions take place from 11:15 – 11:50 and are held in the CB55+ Centre.

The four activities are:

cooking,
lego,
board/card games,
puppetry. 

 

The students really enjoy this addition to their program and the volunteers really enjoy their time with the children.  

 

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, were held this winter for approximately ninety Grade 4 and 5 students.  Eleven CB55+ members provided the lessons.

 

 

IG Photography, coordinated by Brent Carberry. 

A group of volunteers is presently working with Kerri Mitchell’s class on Thursday mornings, and we hope to share our photos at a future Tuesday Drop-In.  We plan to run this program in the winter and spring, and welcome new volunteers.  No experience or expertise is necessary – we all learn as we go.  

 

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.
