For more than seven years with LINKages Society of Alberta she has managed IG programs and trained others how to start their own. Her many intergenerational friendships have shown her the benefits to both seniors and youth of having friendships with people from other generations.
"With the IG training, I enjoyed everything about it. The facilitator Betty was friendly, knowledgeable, and good at communicating with us, sharing resources such as presentation slides before the training day, providing samples that guided us in understanding and getting a clear picture of what we need, to PLAN and IMPLEMENT the IG programs in the work we do! I enjoyed the exercise that came with every training topic we had. Personally, this training was an eye-opener, to realise some of the resources that we might have taken for granted, such as having SENIORS (source of wisdom) and YOUTH (source of energy) under one umbrella to connect, learn from each other, build relationships, share, and find ways to impact the community together." ~Odette Murata
