May 17 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Join Link Generations and the Charles E. Smith Life Communities at Ring House for our last monthly program of the school year. Student volunteers will learn basic principles of gerontology, sensitivity training about working with older adults, and skills for leading monthly intergenerational programs. Examples of activities are music, life storytelling, art, games, and help with technology. Students draw on their own interests in these areas to help them feel comfortable working with older adults. This month’s program is centered around getting ready for summer reading by talking about favorite books. We’ll be sending off high school senior volunteers who are graduating.
