The Intergenerational Jigsaw Club
The UCD Institute for Discovery, with generously acknowledged support from UCD in the Community, are launching a brand new "cultivating community" initiative called 'The Intergenerational Jigsaw Club'. The idea behind the club is to facilitate inter-generational human connection by bringing together members of the UCD community (students, staff, & alumni) with members of the wider community. The club will provide jigsaw puzzles and a fun space, and hopes that people from 12 to 112 years old will come and enjoy the company, conversation, and puzzle completion. Students from local schools Muckross Park College and Gonzaga College are championing this initiative and also hope to start the habit of life-long volunteering.
Kick-off day is April 20 at 2:30pm in ALE H1.49 in the UCD O'Brien Centre for Science. The club will run for 2 hours. Suitable for ages 12-112. Drop in for as little or as long as you like. Look forward to seeeing you there!
