Organization Information

Mission Statement

Teen-aged youth is a worldwide volunteering organisation. We aim to bringing joy to elders in nursing homes through the beauty of art (both visual and performing arts). Though currently, most of our nursing homes are based in Australia, volunteers can contribute from anywhere around world via weekly online zoom sessions.

Description

Teen-aged Youth was initiated during the coronavirus pandemic where age care residents cannot meet their family nor be able to enjoy the accompaniment of volunteers. The program aims to develop a cross generation bond between the age care residents and teenagers as well as a way for young adults to give back to the community. Little performances, conversations and companionship mean a lot to the residents as they barely see young children and have the chance to talk to them. After running several sessions, the feedback is great, utilising our musical and personal strength to perform for the residents can really make their day happier and livelier. We want to tell the residents that we are all a part of the community and we are constantly looking out for them. It will also be a rewarding experience for teenagers to develop their social responsibilities and compassion.
