To create a life-changing intergenerational learning experience, where relationships are fostered, kindness, critical thinking and lifelong learning are encouraged, and out future community leaders are empowered.
iGen is designed to provide close and continuing contact between Elders in long-term care and school-aged children over the period of one school year. The conversations and activities that Elders and children engage in will enhance the learning that happens through relationships in the home that is Sherbrooke.
The iGen program is a Saskatoon Public Schools' Grade 6 classroom located in Sherbrooke Community Centre. This unique learning opportunity includes students who are selected through a division-wide application process. A teacher delivers the program in partnership with Sherbrooke staff, Elders, volunteers and community members.
We become the Whole world to Elders.
