You know the phrase “Think globally, act locally”? We are big proponents of the notion that in order to effect change, we have to start with our most local “communities” (however we define them). Good news: Bridges Together’s “community” is expanding greatly. (Our programs are implemented in communities in Michigan and — soon — California!) Even better news: Amazing technological tools exist that enable us to continue expanding our “local” and sharing our resources near and far! Did you know that, in association with the Massachusetts Association of Councils on Aging, Bridges Together offers free monthly webinars to anyone who has an interest in intergenerational programming? No matter where you’re located, we’d love to help you jumpstart your intergenerational program.
Come join the intergenerational conversation! Our next webinar is Thursday, January 21 at 3 pm EST (please note this new time) and Bridges Together Founder and Executive Director Andrea J. Fonte Weaver will discuss the “Keys to Success” for planning an effective IG program. (Register here.)
Let’s bridge distances (remember, you can call in from wherever you’re located) in order to bridge the generations!
