Intergenerational Programming: Weaving Memoirs on the Web

July 9, 2013 | John P. | Comments (0)

Weaving Memoirs on the Web is an intergenerational program that pairs high school age students with knowledge of computer technology (and who are seeking volunteer hours for graduation) with older adults who have stories and knowledge to share and tell (and who may or may not have knowledge of computer technology). The student volunteers will help the adults to tell their stories by helping each adult to set up a personal blog using the Blogger platform. The program is being offered this summer at the Albert Campbell (496 Birchmount Road) and Morningside (4279 Lawrence Avenue East)  branches. Here are the program schedules at both locations (Click on the program series titles below for additional information):
