BTY (Bridging The Years Program)

Intergenerational Program Description

  

Intergenerational programs are part of the mentoring and relationship building solution. Programs include interactive experiences between local youth and the Senior residents of the Chilliwack community. 

These programs range from educational and informative discussions such as life decisions and family responsibilities to recreational activities such as darts and lawn bowling. The meetings provide a rewarding learning exchange for all as they extend respect for one another, encourage the sharing of ideas, and teach appreciation for different perspectives.

Mission

 Creating valuable relationships between youth and seniors through interactive activities and events.  

Vission

 A community where there are intergenerational connections that bridge the years to foster bonds between seniors and youth so they may learn from one another.
