A meaningful programme that enhances the lives of both generations
JOY brings together the older and younger generations through shared experiences and paired activities to create relationships and friendships based on our core values of respect, empathy and compassion. We use the similarities and differences of these two generations to foster interaction, connectivity and communication and encourage both age groups to learn from each other.
The JOY programme unites children in preschools with grandparents and senior citizens in residential homes and day care centres through one on one interactions that builds, strengthens and deepens relationships as the JOY programme progresses.
We currently run these programmes in North London and our vision is to be Joining Old & Young in every community.
