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?

There are two ways to get involved:

1st option:
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).

2nd option:
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 adult.

Volunteer Commitment:

1st option:
Most of our volunteers attend once a week or once every other week as their time permits. We are be 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.

2nd option:
Students will be matched with an older adult. Pairs will connect weekly for 8-10 weeks. All connections will be virtual via phone or computer.

Training:

For option 1, no Y-Serve training required to get involved. For option 2, there is a 1-hour training session. For more information, email us at linkinggenerations@byu.edu, or contact Suzana Pinheiro at (385) 400-5957.
