SEASONS Senior Speaking Program

SEASONS is an intergenerational educational program that brings senior citizens into the classroom to share first-hand life experiences, careers, hobbies and interests spanning more than 60 years. SEASONS speaker discussions include historical accounts of World War II, adventures in global travel, careers in medical research and health, science and technology, experience in the arts, knowledge about agriculture and world hunger, community service, antiques and their significance and much more. Aligned to specific California Common Core State Standards, SEASONS can help enhance curriculum and build students' background knowledge. By linking our diverse students to former generations, SEASONS helps build a community that bonds young and old of many cultures.
