Looking Through The Wise Eyes Of Seniors A Summit For Seniors & Youth February 24, 2018

The T.H.I.N.K. Mentor Academy and OFF OUR ROCKERS is hosting its first annual summit between seniors and youth to create dialogue to help both sides listen and respect each other’s point of view and create common ground between the generations.

Seniors have experienced history in the making as they’ve grown older through the years and they have been given a gift-the gift of wisdom. They have used their strength and knowledge of life’s ins and outs to uplift and mold those around them. When it is all said and done, they have done their part in the world.

Today’s youth’s daily and social lives are based around technology-phones, computers, tablets, and game systems. Their lives and way of life is different from how other generations have grown up. They can give an outlook of what their world is like to seniors.

A panel of senior leaders –


Alfreida DeGroot, OFF OUR ROCKERS, 

Judy Hendricks, Elogeme Adolphi Christian Sorority Inc.,

Kenneth Kelley, Minister and

R. Norris Watson, PCCEO Foster Grandparent 

will answer questions from the T.H.I.N.K. Mentor Academy youth.

The event will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 10 am to 12 noon at the Peoria Public Library (Lower Level 2 Auditorium), 107 NE Monroe St. This is a free event to the public for all ages.

This event is sponsored by Chick-Fil-A, Boost Mobile, and Community Foundation of Central Illinois.
