At Bridges Together, we are all about sharing expertise and tools to help people of all ages connect with one another in meaningful ways. In that spirit. our Executive Director, Andrea J. Fonte Weaver is creating resources to help you and yours connect – especially intergenerationally – even though you may be staying-at-home. Check out the blog posts, videos and guides here.
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, your family and your community embrace a truly age-integrated reality.
