Amazing Care Network Webinar Highlights Senior Mentoring Program January 21, 2021, 1PM PST
— Dana Griffin, Co-founder and CEO of Eldera
HONOLULU, HI, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Amazing Care Network will feature Dana Griffin, Co-founder and CEO of Eldera.ai. Learn how Eldera connects vetted members (with at least six decades of life experience) with kids for storytelling, help with schoolwork, or conversations through a global network. With the virtual help, children around the world develop resilience and soft skills seamlessly. Eldera reconnects generations through our global community where they engage in live cultural and educational events and receive resources for shared learning, growth, and connection.
“We believe that the wisdom of our elders — with decades of experience, knowledge, love, loss and common sense — is the most valuable resource we can share with the younger generation to help them imagine a better future for all,” stated Dana Griffin, Co-founder and CEO of Eldera.
At Eldera, they believe that this moment doesn’t have to be the social recession we all fear. We can use this pandemic to launch a societal panacea and rebuild the fabric of the primordial village in a time when it is needed the most.
For the first time in history, technology has evolved in a way that can allow everyone to become more human again. There is the rare opportunity to re-imagine the original village structure, for the 21st century and beyond — one that relies on our elders as assets to society and their wisdom as a service to humanity. A virtual village with a real soul.
GOOD FOR KIDS: Kids learn the art of conversation, listening, collaboration and empathy skills. Most importantly, they get the undivided attention of a wise elder, access to their story , wisdom and lifelong experience. The positive effects are immediate.
Eldera is on a mission to rebuild human relationships, one-to-one and many and a time. What started as a hope to make someone’s day better at the beginning of the pandemic, grew into a community spanning 40 states and 22 countries.
GOOD FOR KIDS: Mentoring and building trusted relationships with a non-parental adult is a key form of social-emotional learning and has been proven to build resilience, collaboration, empathy and contribute to success later in life. (Harvard University – Center on The Developing Child Study)
GOOD FOR MENTORS: Mentors (at least 60 years young) draw on their lifelong wisdom, stories and knowledge to inform the next generation. At the same time, they learn how the new generation approaches life and share ideas as part of the nationwide elder council. Intergenerational connection has been proven to support long term cognitive wellbeing in older adults. (John Hopkins University – Experience Corps Study)
GOOD FOR PARENTS: Parents get an ally and don’t feel guilty about the screen time because their children experience two-way educational and wholesome interactions on Eldera as they are socializing with a caring adult.
GOOD FOR SOCIETY: We help rebuild the fabric of society by rebooting the essential connections between generations.
