MRISJ Position: Social Work Intern serving with Bridgewater Senior Center
Allison says: “I am very honored to join MRISJ in conjunction with my work as an intern at the Bridgewater Senior Center. Through this work I hope to build a bridge for intergenerational programming that will help bring more of us together to learn from each other’s experiences. It’s been a great opportunity to get to know the older residents of Bridgewater who have so much wisdom and insight to offer us, and in return students can benefit from making meaningful, lasting connections.”
