Made to Measure

The program increases the social participation and inclusion of senior immigrant women by engaging them in a yearlong mentoring relationship with immigrant girls. Through the mentoring relationships, project participants (seniors and youth) engage in intergenerational activities focused on designing and creating a graduation dress worn by an immigrant girl graduating junior high or high school.  Over the course of the year, project participants engage in monthly activities that will enable senior immigrant women to mentor young immigrant girls.
