The City of Elk River Parks and Recreation Department invites local youth and seniors to participate in our new pen pal program. We believe this is a great way to keep our community connected and will have positive impacts on those involved.
For youth, it will give them the opportunity to do an activity away from a screen, develop letter writing skills, and an opportunity to build a new relationship. For seniors, this can help alleviate boredom and loneliness especially if they are feeling isolated.
How it works: Fill out the online form and we will match you up. We ask that you write at least 2 letters to each other, but you are welcome to continue to write to each other for as long as you would like! In the following weeks, you will get an email from the Activity Center with your new pen pals address.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the Intergenerational Pen Pal Program.
If you are under age 18, your parent or legal guardian must type in full name. This acts as a signature to release your mailing address to your pen pal. Enter N/A if you are over 18 yrs.
By checking the "I agree" box below, you agree and acknowledge that 1) your application will not be signed in the sense of a traditional paper document, 2) by signing in this alternate manner, you authorize your electronic signature to be valid and binding upon you to the same force and effect as a handwritten signature, and 3) you may still be required to provide a traditional signature at a later date.
