This web seminar is based on the 2017 Aging in America Conference (AiA) workshop “From A to Z: Making Intergenerational Programs Easy.”

There is national buzz about all-things intergenerational. In this web seminar, attendees will learn just what intergenerational means, why such programming is necessary; see examples of programs engaging adults ages 60 and older and youth, as well as key steps to build effective programs.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand why intergenerational programs are necessary—not just nice;
  • Identify a wide-variety of intergenerational programs; and,
  • Discuss a proven method to unite generations.
