May 17, 2021 marks the official beginning of the StarkLight Recreation Society’s Seniors Traditional Skills and Mentorship Program. This program is designed to gather the traditional skills, knowledge, personal history, legends and stories of British Columbia’s seniors – videos, documents and podcasts will be made, sharing this wealth of information with future generations.
We are currently seeking up to 30 seniors who would like to share their knowledge and skills with the world. Our program will create media in a variety of paper and virtual platforms, and provide seniors with copies of them all, as well as links to their locations on the internet. This facilitates seniors’ ability to develop careers in skills training, workshop and seminar facilitation, as well as assisting seniors to create a knowledge archive to pass on to their children and descendants, as well as with those around the world who are interested in their unique skills and experiences.
