Errands for Elders

Errands for Elders is a unique service program that offers youth the opportunity to give back to the elder community by availing themselves to assist elders with day-to-day chores.  It is also the goal of the program to build relationships between elders and youth; two groups that often hold negative opinions of the other and to give them the chance to see each other in a new light.  This program supports our intergenerational oral history project by providing a forum for the stories of the elders to be heard, collected, celebrated and honored.
