We are establishing an online presence that will widen the reach of CJE SeniorLife’s Community Engagement Team beyond the physical limitations of our staff numbers, geography, or schedules.
We can reach anyone, anywhere, and at any time that is convenient for them. We will also be providing scheduled live programming for those who prefer it.
Our Cyber Club will have value beyond the current quarantine, as there are regular challenges that prevent our participants from being able to attend live events with us – weather, health, vacations, or transportation limitations. With our online offerings, community members can continue to engage and interact with our content even when they can’t attend our in-person activities.
These virtual offerings are now a permanent new branch of Community Engagement programming. We are inviting you to check often on our Cyber Club pages for new activities, videos and information.
CJE SeniorLife’s Community Engagement Team invites you to join us as we embark on a virtual storytelling journey. Each day we will provide a writing prompt that will bring about a personal story in you.
The writing prompt for today is:
