Improving the lives of children,
youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration,
public policies, and programs.
Generations United is a strong voice supporting the development and expansion of programs bringing children, youth and older adults together. We serve as the clearinghouse for information on different types of intergenerational programs and a champion making the case for local programs across the county and around the world.
Definition: Intergenerational programs, policies, and practices increase cooperation, interaction and exchange between people of different generations, allowing the sharing of their talents and resources, and supporting each other in relationships that benefit both the individuals and their community.
