Writing Across Generations
Writing Across Generations is a virtual intergenerational project to connect local high school students with AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers to share stories, forge connections, and promote the benefits of journaling and creative expression.
Our pilot project with The Community School wrapped up on June 4, 2021.
RSVP of Spokane County promotes senior volunteer opportunities to build a stronger community through partnerships that impact community needs.
