This Senior Buddy Program is an opportunity for a senior and a student to come together and share their experiences. This is a great way for kids to have a better relationship with seniors in their community and gain an understanding of their heritage. The students will call once every week to talk to their senior (who will also act as their mentor) along with meeting them once a month and celebrating a festival with them. Overall, the goal is for kids to connect with their heritage and community in a more personal way.
