    Interest in intergenerational programming has been increasing in recent years. This appeal is fueled by a recognition that communities across the country have a growing resource in people who are living longer and healthier than ever before.

In this webinar, Generations United will share information on how intergenerational programs have created new opportunities and adapted activities in response to our current remote reality, as well as the valuable lessons learned during this process. Hear from innovative programs across the country — from community gardens to virtual visits — that have been creatively adapting to connect generations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to do so into the future.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the benefits of intergenerational programs and their role in addressing individual and community needs.
    2. Recognize effective strategies to create high-quality, remote and physically distant intergenerational programs; understand common challenges of remote intergenerational programs; and gain knowledge of successful ways to overcome them.
    3. Understand the tools and resources available to support the development and implementation of intergenerational programs.
