The Grandparent-Grandchild Connection is delighted to work with JCC Chicago for the Grandparents Write You Story series, co-presented with JCC Chicago. We had over 200 grandparents from 22 states and Canada participate in the last series that began in September on Grandparents Day.

YMCA to Join Write Your Stories

The YMCA of Chicago is the newest partner to join JCC Chicago and us on the next round. We continue with prompts to elicit special memories and conjure the sights, sounds, and smells of your earlier days. This time we also go a little deeper, mixing in prompts to look at the causes that drove you to action and ideas about which you are passionate.

Grandparents Write Your Stories was created by Jerry Witkovsky of Grandparents Unleashed, formerly known as the Grandparent-Grandchild Connection and presented to grandparents around the globe in partnership with JCC Chicago. All prompts are copyright of Jerry Witkovsky and Deanna Shoss and may be shared with attribution.
