More Funding Opportunities! New Hampshire & Rhode Island Now Eligible for Funding for Bridges Program or Community IG Leadership Team

Participants in West Boylston’s Community Intergenerational Leadership Team project

If you’ve been following Bridges Together in the past year on social media or in our eNews, you’ve read about the success of our Community Intergenerational Leadership Team initiative. (By the way, you’ll want to follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn and/or subscribe to our eNews if you haven’t already!)

Click here to read more about this special program, designed to unite different agencies, organizations, and individuals within one community to create a successful intergenerational program specific to the community’s needs.

Thanks to the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, Bridges Together is able to offer funding to communities wishing to partake in this opportunity. Even better, if you are in New Hampshire or Rhode Island, you are now eligible to join Massachusetts communities in applying for this funding!

Click here for dates and then register for an upcoming webinar to walk you through these opportunities.

The Community Leadership Team opportunity is a great fit for you if:

  • You work with a library, town rec center, other community organization or are a town official;
  • You already have an idea of a specific way you’d like to see generations connect in your community (NOTE: This is NOT a prerequisite by any means!);
  • You’d like to participate in an effort that unifies a number of a community’s different entities and agencies

Bridges Together is also continuing to offer grants for communities in these three states that want to implement the off-the-shelf Bridges Program (most often used in schools in conjunction with a local senior organization).

The Bridges Program is a great fit for you if:

  • You are a teacher and would like to integrate an intergenerational initiative into your classroom;
  • You are looking for a program all spelled out in an easy-to-navigate manual
  • You’d like to have an intergenerational program that meets Common Core Standards;
  • You’d like to provide specific, regular volunteer opportunities for the older adults in your organization

Join us for one of the following webinars to learn more:

  • Tuesday, January 16 @ 10 am EST
