Bridging The Generational Gap

Bridging the Generational Gap (BTGG) knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Established during the COVID-19 Pandemic in May 2020, BTGG seeks to work together with youth volunteers in an attempt to serve one of the most vulnerable sectors in the Canadian population, our senior citizens and long term care residents. We realized that the challenges facing our elderly included increased social isolation, loneliness and general disconnectedness from society. To combat these issues and bridge the divide, BTGG is in the process of establishing pen pal programs, face to face digital activities such as friendly visiting, art lessons, storytelling and musical performance. We strive to provide excellent volunteering opportunities to serve those in our communities that need the most support.
