For nearly 25 years, Oaks & Acorns has been creating safe, healthy and fun learning environments where young and old alike give and receive life lessons in understanding, respect, and compassion. We have events and programming to help bring our vision to life by building community.
Here at Oaks & Acorns, we are motivated by a single goal; to build strong bridges between the generations. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our interactions on the greater world. As a result, we developed activities to engage different generations and demographics. We foster intergenerational exchanges. And, have lots of fun together doing that! Oaks & Acorn events encourage and build new bonds. Because we understand the potential of these relationships, we provide safe spaces for them to happen. Consequently, nurturing them and expanding our shared community to grow a forest. Whether planting gardens, cleaning up beaches & canyons, sharing meals & learning table manners, or engaging in meaningful conversation and shared experiences, Oaks & Acorns strives to be a safe (both emotionally & physically) intergenerational community for all participants.
Spring is around the corner. Another Community Cafe is happening. Join in the conversation. Come create connections and community. Maybe the Community Cafe will reveal ways for you and your family to get involved with Oaks & Acorns. Since we are always on the lookout for Big Thinkers, Go-Getters, and new members of our Grove, we might see the sapling in you just waiting for the right environment in which to thrive. Most of all, we want to get to know you. Another way to get involved is to share your ideas of how we can better strengthen relationships between the generations and across demographics. Finally, let us know how you think Oaks & Acorns can best build and serve an intergenerational community. All are welcome. RSVP directly on our Facebook page.
We hope to see YOU on Saturday, March 3rd, 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm at the Mission Valley Library, 2123 Fenton Parkway, Mission Valley, 92108.
