Lessons Learned: Bridging the Gap Between Seniors and Youth

Many Canadian seniors and youth are facing challenges and both groups are becoming increasingly more isolated. We wondered what would happen if we brought them together and attempted to bridge the gap? Lessons Learned: Bridging the Gap is a short film that follows a 3 month pilot-project connecting Markham seniors and youth, through a variety of tools and experiences.
