Seniors For Kids Society – 20 years in Cochrane, Alberta
Seniors become mentors or “school grandparents” to young students by giving of themselves in a non-judgmental way, providing unconditional attention with a desire to encourage young people to reach their full potential.
Sharing: seniors and students are given the opportunity to enjoy sharing their experiences, talents and skills, and fun with each other.
Students get to share their thoughts and feelings with an older adult if they wish, which often helps them learn how to cope with their youthful day-to-day happenings.
Everyone benefits: the seniors, the youth, their families and the community.
