generation bridging program

Inspired by the movie The Intern [Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway], GBP is an avenue for both students and seniors to serve the community while working and learning at the same time. Each student will be paired with a senior during the internship and both will be working on projects together at the Social Service Agency [SSA]. They will also take a course ranging from Psychological first aid to marketing etc.

The primary aim of GBP is to tap on the vast experience of seniors while encouraging them to live an active lifestyle. It is also an opportunity for seniors to form friendships with the next generation, who will also benefit from their insights and perspectives about everyday life.

The program has been put on hold due to the Covid-19 situation. Please contact us here if you need more information.
