Inter-generational Learning Programme

These programmes, supported by Council for 3rd Age (C3A) under the National Silver Academy (NSA), are highly interactive bilingual (English and Mandarin) cooperative learning activities, when youths teach seniors on the topics of technology, music and culture. These programmes allow seniors and youths to come together to learn, to enjoy some interesting activities, to build some mutual understanding for individuals with different personalities, and together to create a caring community. Each session is about 4 hours (1 hour of volunteer briefing + 3 hours of workshop for seniors).

Music

Striking The Same Chord 拨动你我心弦

Seniors and youths will get to jam together, taking turns to exchange their tips, challenges and joys about instrumental playing techniques and learning how to play new music pieces from each other.

Our Youth Volunteers will encourage and challenge our seniors to keep learning new musical and instrumental skills, at the same time learn about our senior's challenges with ageing and personal stories from our seniors.

This programme will feature the learning of ukulele, percussions, and jamming a medley of modern pop songs and oldies, young and seniors, together.

The Millennial Connections

Wondering what and why the youths think and behave the way they do? How to show care and relate to them, or just to understand what they are saying? What is the Millennial Generation, anyway? These questions and more will be discussed through interactive activities to explore the perspectives of the millennial youths on education, career aspiration, financial obligations, relationships, social life and ageing population.
