Calling all High School students in the Milwaukee area to join with Exposure Magazine, and Milwaukee senior protector in an exciting opportunity to give back to your community. Exposure will be pairing qualified high school students and senior citizens in their, Adopt a Grandparent initiative. So many seniors don’t have the benefits of living near their families and young people never experience the wisdom and experience of an elder mentor Therefore, both miss out on this incredible and unique bonding experience.
The changing face of American society has impacted on the family unit. Careers have families on the move and the elderly are flocking to warmer climates. Thus the extended family is virtually non existent.
Students, this would require a commitment of one afternoon a week to visit with your “grandparent”. A brief training will be offered by a licensed social worker to ease you into the relationship. Community service can be a wonderful experience, “ remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” H. Jackson Brown JR. or in the words of Maya Angelou, “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”
