We Are All Elders in Training Summit History
The Elder’s Summit features elders sharing their life experiences and strategies for aging and well-being. Each sharing will be followed by group discussions targeting issues around aging and mental health. JOIN US for group discussions, closing circles each day, and an opportunity to address the issues of aging and mental health for our Elders.
The vision of the Alaska Training Cooperative (AKTC) for offering Elder Summit experiences is to give our Elders, Seniors, and Pioneers an environment and forum where they can be listened to, learned from, and honored for the wisdom and life learning they possess.
In the setting of being “Elder’s in training,” we as providers and community members share in this reflective forum experience, a continuing dialogue that expands over subjects, concerns and ideas that touch the lives of Seniors and Elders.
The goal is to provide our guest speakers and round table discussions with an audience interested in these reflections and dialogue in a continuing learning community experience. Actual “products”, additional actions and activities may come from these Summit events and are welcomed. The main purpose however, is the growth of learning through sharing and listening to the voices of our Elders, Seniors, and Pioneers.
