About the event

Training: understanding the aging process: vision/hearing loss; impaired memory; and aches/pain. How can our teens understand and brew compassion and empathy to seniors if they don’t know what it means to age.

We will also touch base on the alarming rates of teens anxiety and depressions and how with this volunteering efforts we can bring happiness to the teens by fostering the love to “give back” and brew them the sense of purpose.

Of course food has been graciously donated by Gather Healthcare so come hungry and ready to learn.
