The Azorean Intergenerational Campus aims to connect a community of retirees and high school students in Florianopolis, Brazil. At the heart of the campus is the Community Care Center which provides many social spaces for the community as well as full-time care facilities for 20 Elder Azoreans. The community care model will allow high-school students to undertake VET courses in hospitality and personal care work while building relationships with the seniors within the community.
