LINKages facilitates innovative intergenerational programs and services that encourage involvement, transfer of knowledge, and capitalize on the strengths of youth and seniors to foster strong Alberta communities. We are looking for volunteers who would like to visit with a wonderful group of seniors in the Beltline area in a group setting while partaking in an activity planned by LINKages. Activities are planned based on the feedback from the seniors and will vary from time to time. Those under the age of 18 are welcome to volunteer. The volunteer shifts will be for 2-3 hours on Tuesday afternoons. A schedule is produced one month in advance and emailed to our list of volunteers who may choose to sign up for the dates which work for them. We also welcome group volunteer opportunities for over/under 18. Recruitment is ongoing. Please email lee-ann.baines@link-ages.ca to sign up for our next information session.
