Senior-Guides Print E-mail

The Senior-Guides project intended developing, implementing and disseminating a curriculum for the training of older volunteers to conduct guided tours for senior citizens and inform them about specific offers for them in their locality (e.g. lifelong learning opportunities, volunteering possibilities and social services provision).

By developing certain key skills, senior-guides acted not only as consumers but also as cascaders for older people.

Target groups

Generally, the project addressed

  • older people, who are interested in participating in the training and providing senior-guide tours
  • older people, who are interested in participating in tours
  • organizations that want to act as hosts of guided tours

Senior-Guides was a GRUNDTVIG project in the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme (2007 – 2013) and lasted from 1st October 2009 to 30th September 2011.
