Originating from Brantford, Ontario, Canada, SKIP was conceived and initiated by Liz Martorano. An active and involved community member, Liz was inspired by similar programs operating in other countries and was determined to create support for a like-minded Canadian program.
Whether you’re a public school educator, a nursing home manager or an interested volunteer, we encourage your participation! Please contact us with your questions, suggestions and requests. Together we can build a strong program and bridge the gap between young and old.
Please contact us anytime for more information about SKIP and how you can get involved.
