The Intergenerational Skills Exchange Project at The Safe House bridges age gaps to facilitate personal, collaborative and shared learning of skills. The project is based on discrete 1:1 and small group sessions through which young people and older people teach, learn and exchange skills as diverse as:
- welding and metalwork
- sewing and needlework
- mobile technology, IT and social media skills
- languages and literacy skills
- science, maths and numeracy skills
- cooking and baking
- online shopping
- government and the electoral system.
At The Safe House, we coordinate, develop and facilitate teaching and learning sessions across the age ranges for mutual understanding and shared learning.
If you are interested in participating in this scheme, either as a client or facilitator, or both (!), or if you would like to discuss supporting the Intergenerational Skill Exchange Project, just fill in the form below and we will get back to you with details of how to be involved in this part of the work of The Safe House.
