Three years of the Amity Program


The Amity Program marks its third anniversary this February. Through its five branches: Pen-pal Program, Telephone Correspondence Program, Card-Making Initiative, Art Box Program, and Books, Board Games, and Bonding, it has been able to gain enthusiastic participation from both high school students and older adults: fulfilling our mission of increasing intergenerational interaction.


To commemorate this anniversary, I will go through the top accomplishments of each year in operation.


2020:

I founded the Amity Program as a Pen-Pal Program. Then I expanded programming to include a Telephone Correspondence Program, an Art Box Program, and a Card-Making Initiative.


2021:

At the beginning of the year, the Amity Program was officially incorporated and became a tax-exempt organization.


2022:

The Student Leadership Division was launched and has designed a new program–Books, Board Games, and Bonding. Books, Board Games, and Bonding is our first in-person intergenerational program.

(check out a recent article written about the program)


Looking forward to 2023:

We hope to increase in-person programming and continue to facilitate intergenerational interaction with existing activities.
