New Horizons 2020

Golden Connections Seniors Program.

This project will focus on using technology to keep the members of our community who are 55 years old and over connected, active and contributing participants in Caribbean culture.

Thanks to a contribution from Service Canada under the New Horizons for Seniors Program, we are able to offer online Caribbean folk dance, stretching and drum classes to seniors in the Black English Speaking community. These classes will promote well being, increase levels of physical activity, improve memory, improve coordination and help to reduce the feeling of isolation and loneliness some seniors in our community are experiencing during these times. Seniors will be able to maintain connection to their community in this new covid-19 reality.
