Emmy’s intergenerational Bridging the Gap program sees residents enjoy regular interactions with students from Mount Scopus Memorial College. Residents share values, traditions and stories with the students each session, while participating in fun and meaningful activities. 

In 2020, Bridging the Gap went virtual due to COVID-19 restrictions. While we of course missed having the students on site at Emmy, we were thrilled to be able to continue it. Connecting with the students is extremely rewarding for residents and students, with each session bringing smiles and laughter.

We have recently been able to have students join us on-site for programs such as Hands on Clay, seated yoga and even Rosh Hashana baking and sing-a-longs!
