Our Village has a longstanding history of partnering with local colleges and universities, which provides the opportunity for student placements within our Wellness Team. Students gain practical experience in their related field, while contributing their skills to our community. Staff embrace opportunities to mentor and integrate fresh ideas and perspectives into existing programs, while residents enjoy sharing their knowledge, experiences and wisdom with a younger generation.

We wanted to highlight some of the incredible students working with us this term
