Gen Connect Biography project


About the GEN Connect Project

The GEN Connect Project aims to foster connections between secondary students and isolated seniors through conversation and the compilation of the seniors’ life stories.

The first trial of the Project was run in 2020. Participating students were required to conduct two telephone conversations per week for eight-ten weeks. The information gathered over this period was then collated into a biography.
