Seniors For Kids Society - 16 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.
Senior volunteers and students, built bat houses as part of an enviromental awareness project. These bat houses are for sale at $25.00 each which are stained with mounting instructions. Some may be purchased unassembled as kits. These make great gifts!
Please support the school's mentoring program by purchasing Bat houses. Contact Seniors for Kids Society at 403-861-4558.
"Grandparents and Grandchildren are joined by the heart."
