Participate in a cross-generational activity.
The time devoted to this cross-generational activity truly makes a difference in the lives of our residents, and it has a lasting, positive impact in the students' lives too. The Grandfriends program pairs sixth grade students from South Middle School with our residents, and they meet monthly during the school year. Each student conducts a life story interview with their Grandfriend and participates in arts and crafts, games, and snacks. The students write in their journals after each visit, and at the end of the year they present their compilation of writings and illustrations as a book and give it to their Grandfriends as a gift.
