About Bridges Together

2014 Bridges and Andrea Weaver-39Bridges Together Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to designing and distributing intergenerational programs that bring adults over the age of 55, children and educators together in academically and socially invigorating environments.   Typically, a group of adult volunteers collaborate with children – working in small groups under the guidance of the educator or teacher.  The approximate ratio is two volunteers for every six children.  Bridges Together programs usually run for several consecutive weeks.

The goals of Bridges Together are to:

  • Create more positive views of aging
  • Build and strengthen communities
  • Increase understanding between the generations
  • Reinforce family ties
  • Provide adults with the opportunity to reflect on and share their life experiences

Bridges Together:  helping people of all ages appreciate growing older – as they grow together!
