A New Intergenerational Program for Kids in Grades K-2 and Older Adults – including Grandparents

Do you know a child who enjoys spending time with grandparents or older adults? How about one who likes book and art? Or perhaps a child who can’t wait to get into fourth-grade to do the Bridges program?

Well, we have the perfect opportunity for them! The Goodnow Library is piloting a new Bridges program, entitled Bridges: Our Stories, for children in grades kindergarten through second grade on Thursdays from Feb. 27 – April 3 from 4 – 5:15PM.

Following the successful formula that the fourth-grade classes in Sudbury use, pairs of volunteers will work alongside the children in small groups. To prepare for each session, children will have the opportunity to interview their grandparents or their parents, about their grandparents’ experience.  Together, the children and volunteers will enjoy a timeless book, share about their own stories and create a piece of art. There will also be a fun game each week. The sessions will be led by staff from the Goodnow and Bridges Together.
