Intergenerations Connect
Are you over 55 with a skill to share? If so we'd love to hear from you. All volunteer elders receive a complimentary beverage and meal for their assistance. We can also assist with transport if needed.

More info:

Please join us in co-creating an intentful community initiative that bridges the gap between generations through skill-based community sharing and learning.

Partially funded by Stockland's 'Good to Give' program as part of the Aura development.

The 'Intergenerations Connect' initiative provides a platform where over 55's can share their gifts, passions, knowledge, wisdom and skills with the younger generation. The focus is on essential 'village life' skills which promote resource-security, sustainability, health and resilience. This may include basic survival skills, bush foods, plant medicine, wood working, building, sewing/knitting/weaving, cultivating food (permaculture, edible gardens), food preparation, ecology, environmental sciences, navigation etc.

🌻Run at Mooloolah Valley Country Club each Tuesday 10am – 1pm from July – December 2019 for 24 weeks
🌻 One main retired volunteer to share their skill (although more are welcome to participate and/or assist), and one volunteer parent to assist. Depending on how difficult the skill is, parents of children under 6 are encouraged to stay and assist their child. Or alternatively, parents can rotate taking care of each others children. 🌻 Each week we adopt a similar rhythm which usually consists of welcome song, mindfulness, yoga/dance, one main skill-based activity, story time, free play and goodbye song. 🌻 All parents and elders in attendance equally contribute to facilitate the rhythm and flow of the day
🌻 Exchange for children in attendance - contribute what you can afford and resonates. Somewhere between $5 - $10 per child
🌻 Maximum of 20 children, for ages 4-10 yrs

If we get enough interest and someone to coordinate, we will run a playgroup alongside this, encouraging a wider community involvement and support. Please get in touch if you're interested in this.

Whilst the target age is 4 - 10 yrs, all ages are welcome. We believe most activities can be inclusive for all ages if the parents are involved and adjusting the activity for the age of their own child/ren. Even if the child is under 3, the parent may enjoy learning these skills as the child observes and interacts as desired.
