Child Development & Family Studies

 Eight Children Development & Family Studies participated in a unique opportunity, called "Building Bridges", that was offered at the 7th Eden Alternative International Conference, in Nashville. Building Bridges: Bringing Elders & Youth Together Through Story & Understanding is a fun, service learning experience where participants have the opportunity to see aging through new eyes and experience the power of story (legacy) in collaboration with an Elder storyteller. By our definition, an Elder is someone, who by virtue of life experience, is here to teach us how to live. Creating opportunities to learn about and promote a fresh perspective of what Elders and youth have to offer one another is the first step toward creating well-integrated, supportive communities. The Eden Alternative is an international non-profit organization focused on transforming perceptions of aging and quality of life for Elders and their care partners.
