If you’ve been to any Bridges Together events or poked around our website or social media accounts, you’ve certainly heard of the “Bridges program,” more formally known as the Bridges Program Curricula Suite. Although we’ve branched out and are equally known as providers of top-notch professional development in the intergenerational field, our off-the-shelf programs designed for youth (preschoolers through high schoolers) and older adults is where we got our start and how we became known!
Perhaps you’ve heard of a neighboring town implementing a Bridges program or you’ve seen an article or two about it in your local newspaper. (Take a look at our media page as well as our YouTube channel for more info!) If this ready-made and tested curricula for intergenerational engagement seems interesting, you may want a Bridges program “primer”!
We are offering three one-hour webinars this month that will give you all the information you need in order to get a Bridges program up and running in your community. Join us on Monday, May 23 (3:30 – 4:30 pm EST), Tuesday, May 24 (12 -1 pm EST) or Thursday, May 26 (9 – 10 am EST) – these sessions will all be the same, so pick the time that works best for your schedule! From the ins and outs of finding funding, to what to expect from the training and the actual sessions, to the theories behind our programs, these webinars will provide you with all you need to know! Intergenerational Facilitator Julie Shaw will walk you through the process of acquiring and implementing a Bridges curriculum; there will be plenty of time for Q & A.
