My Community Project VOTE 1 for us in Keira

Inter-Generational Project
Our Digital Skills / Life Experience project is partnering with the Young Mentors Program driven by the eSafety Commissioner, an inter-generational reverse mentoring program for school children and older Australians. Not only does it facilitate essential digital learning for older Australians, it also gives young people the opportunity to develop valuable teaching, communication and leadership skills.

As described above, this cross-generational project will train and mentor high-school students to teach seniors digital skills and, in turn, seniors will teach students life skills from the days before the Internet. In this way our whole community benefits!
