SAGES & SEEKERS
Sages & Seekers Program strives to combat social isolation and dissolve age-related segregation within our communities, while meeting the universal and compelling need of both young adults and elders to make sense of their lives. This is achieved by the simple art of conversation.
A 15 minute movie about the Sages and Seekers inter-generational program will be shown. Loni Brown, Sage Liaison, will answer questions and tell stories about the Sages (Senior Citizens) and the Seekers (High School Student). Ms. Brown states, “ The Sages and Seekers program is profound, important, and fun. I have witnessed positive changes in both generations. This program reduces isolation, and gives a sense of contributing to community, connecting with another generation, and increases the value of meaningful, authentic conversations."
In 2017 the University of Southern California held a study on program participants and both generations had increased cognitive brain function due to participation in the program.
Both Pasadena Village members and non-members are welcome.
