Educating, Connecting and Empowering Generations
Bridges Together Inc. is the only organization in New England – and one of a few in the United States – devoted to training others to implement successful and meaningful intergenerational programs.
By 2050, adults over the age of 65 will outnumber children under the age of 15. Currently, 10,000 Americans turn 65 each day; they can expect to live to be 85. These realities provoke critical questions: Who will design solutions to support these Baby Boomers? Who will care for them? How will relationships flourish in families and in the workplace?
Bridges Together believes that strong intergenerational programs are part of the solution. We offer award-winning curricula as well as professional development services for leaders in schools, senior centers, aging services and other community organizations.
We believe that individuals benefit and communities flourish when older adults and youth connect in meaningful ways. Want to start your intergenerational journey? Find out how here.
