C.A.R.E. Program

The CARE Program is a new program that Kimochi Inc. and JCYC (Japanese Community Youth Council) are doing in partnership with the City of San Francisco. The aim of the program is to foster an exchange between generations by hosting inter-generational activities. Please see the C.A.R.E Program schedule.

The CARE Program is made up of four different programs.

  1. Chibi Chan Preschool Exchange
    Seniors will have the opportunity to volunteer at Chibi Chan Preschool and Chibi Chan Too Preschool for science experiments, arts and crafts, music, reading, and games. 

  2. Tech Support Exchange 
    High school and college students from JCYC will have the opportunity to teach seniors how to use cell phones, computers, iPads, etc.

  3. Cultural Exchange
    We will be hosting Japanese cultural events, such as film screenings, holiday celebrations, and traditional Japanese games to create a space where people of all ages can come together to learn and have fun.

  4. Writing Workshops
    For these inter-generational writing workshops, all age groups are invited to write poetry and personal narratives together. Seniors can write about their lives and younger people can write about theirs to foster greater understanding. Written works will be published at the end of the program year.
