CNC’s international students are assembling a community panel on age and culture that will explore how seniors are treated in Canada compared to other countries.
The panel is slated for Friday, Nov. 22 between noon – 1:30 p.m. in Rm. 1-306 (lecture theatre) at CNC’s Prince George campus. The public is invited to attend the forum.
“Everyone is welcome to join us for an international and community conversation about how younger generations treat older generations in different cultures,” said Sabreena MacElheron, CNC co-ordinator of the international ambassadorship and leadership students. “A diverse panel of Elders from many countries, communities and cultures will participate in the discussion.”
The panel will be facilitated by CNC instructor Jacob Madjitey and is organized by the international ambassadorship and leadership students.
“This forum would be beneficial for those who plan to work with seniors, such as nursing, social work, and health care assistant students,” said MacElheron.
The students are following up this panel discussion with a talent show the same night, Nov. 22, at the Seniors’ Centre, 425 Brunswick St.
The evening event, from 6-8 p.m. features dance, music, comedy, and soccer skills performed by students from around the world. Admission is by donation of non-perishable food item. Items collected will be included in Christmas hampers for seniors that will be delivered personally by CNC international students Dec. 23.
