Pen Pal Program

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the isolation experienced by youth and seniors – especially those without technology. The LINKages Pen Pal Program has been designed to include participation from all communities and any organization, creating an opportunity for Calgary to work together for inclusion.

The Pen Pal Program is unique in that we use organization hubs to receive and forward all letters, ensuring that pen pal participants’ privacy is protected. We also provide support to all pen pals to ensure positive relationship development, as we would like nothing more than to have all of our pen pals meet each other one day soon!
