On Wednesday, October 26, Bridges Together and the Maynard Council on Aging will share about how to build intergenerational bridges in your community. Join representatives from Bridges Together (Executive Director Andrea J. Fonte Weaver and Intergenerational Facilitator Julie Shaw) and the Maynard Council on Aging (Director Amy Loveless and Maynard COA and Bridges volunteer Dottie MacKeen) as they discuss the positive impact of the Bridges program in this community. (Read about our program in Maynard here or here.)

On Friday, October 28, Bridges Together Founder and Executive Director Andrea J. Fonte Weaver will lead a three-hour session on the Nuts and Bolts of Intergenerational Programs. Many senior centers are thinking about or are beginning to unite children and older adults. How can you ensure that your initiative is an effective one? This will be an engaging and fun workshop filled with many practical tips.
