develop volunteers and engage citizens;

LINKages facilitates innovative intergenerational programs and services that encourage involvement, transfer of knowledge, and capitalize on the strengths of youth and seniors to foster strong Alberta communities.
Albertans of all ages need to be valued, respected and appreciated for their experiences and potential; we invite citizen engagement and positive contributions that enhance our communities.
LINKages aims to

encourage personal development and learning
overcome ageist stereotypes
