Eden Apprentice Training
Gifting The Eden Alternative to the Next Generation
Eden Apprentice Training introduces young people, ages 11 to 18 to the Eden Alternative Ten Principles, with an eye toward seeing care and aging in a new light. Available as a comprehensive training kit, this 1-day experiential workshop promotes a vision of communities that view Elderhood as a valued phase of human development — where Elders are understood to have a gift or legacy to share with younger generations. Inspired by the notion that deep transformation relies firmly on education of youth, Eden Apprentice Training:
- Inspires youth participants to become change agents at the grassroots level;
- Highlights the impact of ageism and reframes perspectives on aging; and
- Empowers participants to design their own intergenerational projects.
