What is Linking Generations?

Linking Generations at BYU does online service for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and other family history-related organizations. We focus on the following projects:


How do I get involved?


Weekly Meetings

Volunteer Description: You are welcome to join us at any of our weekly meetings on Tuesdays from 5 to 6 pm at the Y-Serve office (2330 WSC).

Volunteer Commitment: Most of our volunteers attend once a week or once every other week as their time permits. We are accepting service hours that you give outside of our Tuesday meetings, as long as you are working on one of our current projects and began to do so with the intent of serving with Y-Serve.

Multigenerational Program

Volunteer Description: We are also looking for volunteers to participate in a multigenerational program that pairs socially isolated older adults with students for weekly enriching conversations. Volunteers will record the older adults' life stories during the conversations and help publish a booklet for the older adults.

Volunteer Commitment: Students will be matched with an older adult. Pairs will connect weekly and commit for 8 - 10 weeks. All connections will be virtual via phone or computer.
