Former and present Intergenerational Learning Center (ILC) attendees (and a parent if the child is 8 or younger) are encouraged to submit your story of the impact of your experience at The Mount. Your story will help us to document and celebrate a key impact of this program as children and graduates have learned to live their lives perhaps with greater empathy, compassion and acceptance of elders and those less able.
If you are 9 or older, we want to hear from you directly about how your experience at the ILC shows up in your life today, even if you graduated 20 years ago. Parents may submit a story for children up to age 8. Please incorporate your child’s thoughts, ideas and experiences as much as possible. Your story will encourage others to continue attending and supporting the ILC for generations to come.
*This award is in honor and in memory of Dyke R. Turner, the visionary architect who was key in inspiring and then designing the program and spaces back in 1991, in collaboration with Joan Whitley, Program Director, and Charlene Boyd, Administrator.
