G2 is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a strong, close-knit community between older adults and children in the Rochester area. Children and adults are paired with one another for weekly 30-minute meetings in which relationships are built through conversation and play in the classroom. The program is intended to give children a center of emotional and social support in order to succeed in and out of the classroom, providing a means of hope and success for each child’s future.
