How-to-Guides (H2Gs ) Issues & Themes

Since January, 2018, Bridges Together has published a monthly How To Guide on a different theme. They are designed to help anyone who wants to build bridges between generations – whether through groups (think classrooms, senior center & housing, community organizations)… or in families and mentoring relationships.


Each H2G has an unique theme and is chock-full of information on the art & science of intergenerational engagement including questions to start meaningful conversations and activities for people of all ages and abilities.
