LINKages’ vision is a strong and vibrant community where youth and seniors thrive.
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.
We connect youth and seniors in a spirit of cooperation, friendship and respect where both generations benefit from sharing their experiences, skills and knowledge. Our aim is to:
- build bridges between generations by connecting young people and seniors in ways that are mutually beneficial.
- develop volunteers and engage citizens through community involvement
- foster and celebrate age-friendly communities through personal development and learning
- overcome ageist stereotypes.
