Seeking volunteers and participants for a co-generational storytelling program.
About the Program:
For this co-generational program, we are looking for older adults and young adult volunteers who would be interested in participating to share and help document the stories, words of wisdom, and hopes of our elder community members.
Older adults will be paired with UW student volunteers or other young adult volunteers who will document their personal narratives in a booklet, ALL ABOUT ME: My Personal Story, which will be gifted to all participants. The facilitated discussion will include topics such as My Favorite Memories, How I Fell in Love, My Bucket List, and more.
These narratives will become a treasured legacy gift to be shared with family and future generations.
Training and structured questions will be provided for all volunteers at the start of the program.
This program is free and includes lunch for all participants.
