High School Students Connect with Seniors

January 14, 2021

SAGES & SEEKERS at The Rivers School

Spring 2021 ~ 7 Week Volunteer Opportunity

The non-profit organization Sages & Seekers and The Rivers School in Weston are recruiting Seniors (65 and older) to participate in a 7-week intergenerational program with high school students at The Rivers School. Seniors, come share your life experience and invaluable knowledge. You have so much to offer the world; your maturity and experience allows for a larger perspective on life from which younger generations can learn. You will be paired with one, 10th grade student (the same student each week) with whom you will meet once a week for 7 weeks to share your life experiences. Past participants are welcome and rave about the program! Your commitment is one hour, once a week for 7 consecutive weeks. Classes meet remotely this year due to COVID and can be done via Zoom, Facetime, or phone. Classes run from April 8, 2021-May 21, 2021 and meet during the school day on Thursday and Friday. This program currently has enough volunteers. However, if you’re interested in being added to the waitlist please contact Lisa Foley at email hidden; JavaScript is required or email hidden; JavaScript is required
