BIR (Building Intergenerational Relationships):

Mission:

BIR was founded this year as a collaboration between two student organizations: Glamour Gals and Brewster Buddies. Last year, Brewster Buddies focused on bringing entertainment and building one-on-one relationships between the Villagers and Lawrentians. Glamour Gals, on the other hand focused on providing opportunities for Villagers to get their nails and makeup done, to make them feel beautiful. This year, BIR brings the great qualities of both organizations and visits Brewster Village multiple times throughout the year.
Volunteer Opportunities:
-Looking for volunteers willing to donate their time to give manicures and makeovers to Brewster Village residents, play games, and solve puzzles
