Intergenerational Programming

Thanks to the Government of Canada’s New Horizon’s Grant, Riverside Lions Seniors Residences and the Louis Riel School Division successfully launched a valuable and growing partnership in 2009 to promote and sustain intergenerational relationships, activities, and learning between our seniors and local high school students. The program continues to grow into 2011, with a number of both ongoing and new activities being planned to enrich the lives of students and seniors, their families, teachers and our staff.

In support of our intergenerational programming and the positive impact students from the Louis Riel School Division have had in the daily lives of our seniors and our community, the Riverside Lions Club established an award in June 2010 acknowledging the valuable and exceptional contributions of our graduating students. Our first award recipient, Savannah, is pictured here with our Board Treasurer, our Tenant Association President and Savannah’s mom and dad.
