We Are the World Blogfest Nov 2017

I love this story, which seems perfect for a We Are the World entry.  A group called Thirdage that started primarily to offer assistance to seniors noticed an influx of immigrants and their isolation and set up a program for seniors to teach language classes for the immigrants.  Simple and brilliant.  Check out the story at The Positive News site.

This month’s blogfest is co-hosted by:

  1. Simple and brilliant indeed – this is exactly the kind of initiative that fills my heart. Kudos to Thirdage not only for their important work, but also their willingness to share what they’ve learned with others so they can implement the strategies as well. Thanks so much for sharing this one!

  2. What a great idea! The seniors are valued in the community and have more social interaction with the newcomers. As they teach English, I’m sure they provide helpful information and make friends. What a win-win for everyone!

Please add your thoughts; love a good discussion!
