Seniors For Kids Society - 18 years in Cochrane, Alberta

Seniors for Kids Society is a not-for-profit organization that promotes intergenerational relationships.
  • 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.
