rewired to inspireThis is a pretty new program involved students 7-18 years old and adults aged 55 and up. The fun and successful kick-off event took place on May 20th.  After several months off, they are coming back to resume the program on September 16th, with a plan to have it regularly on every 3rd Friday of the month.

Sponsored by FUSS (Fremont Unified Student Store), this student initiated Care Project helps build a bridge between older adults and students.  Through this program, adults can act as role models by sharing their cultural heritage and wisdom while students can increase their communication and leadership skills as well as enhance their emotional intelligence (EQ).

For more information, check their website, or contact rewiredtoinspire@gmail.com
