Generations on Exchange (GensXchange)

A unique exchange program for all ages

About the program

Generations on Exchange (in short, GensXchange) is a unique exchange program for all ages* to share life skills, experiences and stories. (*refer guidelines)

We strongly believe that befriending is only meaningful when it’s a two-way engagement, bringing mutual benefits to all parties. Therefore, we started this program to bring seniors, adults, and youths onboard a common digital platform where they can make new friends from a different generation and connect intellectually and emotionally.

Through a 2-week curated program, participants will receive prompts of topics/activities to help them connect and befriend each other via Simi app. After the 2-week program, they can choose to stay in the bubble and continue building friendships.

Social interactions made intuitive & meaningful

COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the psychological well-being of many in our society. And that motivated us to build a better digital support system for our community. While many other organizations work on supporting the physical well-being of the vulnerable groups, we look into the psychological aspects, focusing on (but not restrictive to) the 3 key elements below.

Emotional Well-being

One of the feelings many of us are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic is loneliness. The impact of long-term loneliness on mental health can be very hard to manage.

Sometimes, all it takes to make someone’s day is just a simple “how are you?”. Using the Simi app’s mood tracker, you can check in with each other with just a tap.

Making a new friend can already be tough, what more to say a new friend with a common interest during this challenging time!

With this program, we match individuals from different generations but with similar interests in a small group setting, so you can be sure to have lively exchanges!

Intellectual Well-being​

We live in an era where we never lack of accessibility to knowledge. But still, nothing beats the experience of interacting with a living library! 

Through GensXchange, you can share skills, experiences and ideas, and gain new perspectives from your new friends of a different generation.
