Over the years, Southeast Seniors has been lucky to have wonderful volunteers. In the last 3 years, over 40 of those have been UMN students. For the most part, they have been members of the Connection Club, a special way that students and folks over 65 connect for at least one semester to do many different activities together. By opening their doors, older folks get to see what life as a student is like while students come to understand what life's lessons can teach you. Active people over 65 often have an hour or two each week that can give younger people a new view on aging. We would love more older partners, so if you are reading this and would like to participate yourself, or know someone who would, please get in touch with us.
