Jacks are the makers, creators, hobbyists, tinkerers, and crafters.
They are the seniors in our society whose tactile skills and wisdom is completely untapped.
Jack is your neighbour,
the self-taught artist.
Jack is your grandmother,
making family dishes from scratch.
Jack is your uncle,
retired carpenter turned hobbyist.
Hello Jack is a platform facilitating connections between younger people and seniors through skill-sharing and mentorship.
Seniors are encouraged to host an informal workshop at their home or public venue, where their tactile skill - changing a car tire or making cheese, for example - can be shared!
We believe that friendships built on shared interests and intergenerational mentorship can help combat social isolation, encouraging a healthy dialogue between people of varied backgrounds and perspectives.
"We see people turning to YouTube to learn things like starting a fire while camping or how to begin painting their home.
Instead, why not connect, create, and grow across generations with Hello Jack."
