Audio recording coming soon.


Thursday, April 28, 2016
1pm-2pm EDT

For decades, governments, non-profits, community health and education advocates have worked from two different camps to alleviate bullying of youth and abuse of older adults.
This webinar will assist you in understanding reasons for, and ways to bring, those two generational camps together, simply and cost effectively, for maximum impact on their shared area of concern.
The team will present a brief background of this work, 2 exemplary projects, and introduce four free resources to guide your interest. There will be a Q & A in which we heartily invite you to take part.

The presentation will be in English.
PowerPoint slides will be available in English and French.

Who should attend 
Educators, community networkers, senior-serving organizations, elder abuse prevention stakeholders, youth workers, and anyone interested in building community.

KeriAlbertKeri Albert
Keri Albert is the lead teacher of the iGen Intergenerational Classroom at Sherbrooke Community Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Keri loves people and building relationships and the iGen project was a perfect way to weave an innovative classroom experience with community building in long term care. Keri is a classroom teacher with 19 wonderful years experience in Kindergarten through grade 8 classrooms in Saskatchewan. She was part of two art projects at Sherbrooke Community Centre with her students in 2008-2010 where she was inspired by the Elders who told their stories through painting and drawing. While completing her MEd in 2013, she returned to Sherbrooke to initiate an intergenerational classroom proposal. Sherbrooke's long history with Elders and students working together and a powerful partnership with Saskatoon Public Schools allowed the Intergenerational classroom proposal to be accepted. In September 2015, iGen was launched with 20 students accepted into the program. iGen is changing lives by bringing variety, spontaneity, and excitement into the lives of children and Elders alike. Keri is continuing to teach, develop, and lead the iGen program in its second year, 2015-2016, with a world-changing class of grade six students.
