Intergenerational Initiatives


Positive connections between young and older people result in vibrant, well-functioning communities. To develop and enhance these connections we have been working with the Kapiti Coast District Council’s Youth Council and Zeal Kapiti, an organisation dedicated to helping young Kiwis discover express and develop their unique creativity.

Various initiatives are planned including a forum for sharing stories on topics of interest and a repeat of the Tech Help sessions held last year which were a tremendous success.  These sessions involve young people instructing older people how to get the most out of devices such as a mobile phone or a laptop. Tutorials on how to use Zoom and Facetime and information for managing online accounts are all popular. Keep an eye on the What’s On page on this website for future activities.

We meet regularly with Zeal and the Kapiti Youth Council and would be pleased to hear your ideas for initiatives.  You can send your suggestions on the ‘Tell Us’ page.
