Linking Generations Volunteer Grandparent Program

The Volunteer Grandparent Program offers seniors in Strathcona County more opportunities to help bridge the multi-generational gap. The Volunteer Grandparent Program was created in response to a lack of opportunities for young and older generations to relate in an increasingly age-segregated society.

  • reading stories to the whole classroom
  • having a student read a story to the senior
  • help students who are having difficulty with an assignment
