Seniors and Kids Intergenerational Programs

SKIP stands for Seniors and Kids Intergenerational Programs. Our School Visitation program brings together students of all ages with nursing/retirement home seniors. 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.
