Connecting Generations

(formerly called Eldercare)

TELEM Teens really make a difference in people's lives!

In TELEM’s Connecting Generations Track, teens and older adults come together to share stories, play games, learn together and to enjoy each other’s company. Teens and seniors have a lot to share with and learn about each other, and the Connecting Generations track is a great way to make new inter-generational friendships. The teens bring lots of energy and spirit to their older friends who in turn bring wisdom and world experience into the friendship. The bond that develops between teens and their elders is enriching for all.
