As we are currently unable to visit retirement homes due to the pandemic, we have temporarily shifted the program to a pen-pal program, in which students and seniors write back and forth throughout the school year. Prior to the pandemic, the program involved in-person visits of elementary school classes to local retirement homes. The volunteer coordinator is responsible for connecting nursing, retirement and group homes with local elementary school partners.
All activities, presentations, and educational learning will be done virtually this year. There is something for everything at YouthTALK. This year we are hoping to create and deliver presentations, create social media posts, develop school lesson plans with videos, announcements, and classroom activities included, participate in community events, and more.
Youth are empowered to use their voices to create meaningful change. Team members are able to help deliver an important message to their peers in the efforts of creating a world where all people have hope and never feel alone.
If you want to make a difference for other youth in your community, become a YouthTALK Regional Team member! Learn more at https://www.youthtalkgwd.ca/ or email email@example.com
