Educating, Connecting and Empowering Generations
At Bridges Together, we believe that strong intergenerational programs are a vaccination against ageism and a prescription for longevity. The benefits of meaningful intergenerational engagement are clear: Strong intergenerational programs empower youth to aspire to be active, healthful older adults all while experiencing being treasured by an older adult. In turn, strong intergenerational programs allow older adults to stay socially engaged, reflect on their lives as well as share their experience and wisdom.
Bridges Together is your go-to organization on the art and science of intergenerational engagement. We offer hands-on training and tools to help you and your community – whether that’s your school, your town, or your own family – embrace a truly age-integrated reality.
