Bridging the Generational Gap
Established in May 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bridging the Generational Gap (BTGG) works together with youth volunteers to serve senior citizens and long term care residents across Canada.
We recognize the implications of social distancing on mental health, especially for the elderly who may be taking extra precautions. Our mission is to facilitate meaningful intergenerational relationships between seniors and young members of the community through safe, remote platforms. We aim to promote a sense of social connectedness during what can be a very lonely time.
