Bridges Together Inc. is a not-for-profit, charitable organization (501c3) dedicated to developing and distributing innovative and effective intergenerational programs as well as educating people engaged in intergenerational work.
The flagship program, Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together, has been successfully implemented in public schools, private schools and community centers for more than 20 years. In November, Gardner’s Garden, was launched.
In all Bridges Together programs children, older volunteers and educators come together in socially invigorating environments where they can share their experiences and learn from one another. The volunteers and children collaborate in small groups, learning from one another and having fun together. With the clear curriculum and comprehensive training manuals, Bridges Together programs are easy to implement and yield many benefits.
For children and seniors alike, Bridges Together programs help to strengthen the community and increase understanding between the generations. They promote positive attitudes about aging, expand learning opportunities and strengthen family ties.
Bridges Together truly build bridges in your community and changes lives!
