University-School Link Partnership Projects (USLP) For Promotion of Intergeneration Communication

Research output: Working paperWorking paper series

Abstract

Started as a pilot experiment, the University-School Link Partnership (USLP) was designed to encourage interactions between young and old people. It was first initiated in 2000 and implemented from September 2001 to September 2002. Co-organized by the Asia-Pacific Institute of Ageing Studies (APIAS), Lingnan University and the Church of Christ in China Ming Kei College, the USLP involved four schools and ten social welfare organizations with a total of 288 students, 265 older persons and 106 volunteers participating in the project.

The aims of the project were to enhance the intergenerational relationship between the young and the older participants through a series of well-structured programmes including training workshops, social service projects, project reports presentation, CD-ROM production, as well as experiences of mutual care and support during an overnight camp. The activities have not only improved the social competence skills of the participants of all ages, but also developed an off-campus curriculum (service learning) for the students and provided insights for elderly service agencies.
