Improving the lives of children,
youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration,
public policies, and programs.
Generations United encourages youth (ages 13-25) to start, expand and lead intergenerational programs in their communities. To get started, check out the Youth-Lead Intergenerational Toolkit and the online interactive companion guide.
We are pleased to be currently working with Mentor Up, a new way to make a difference from AARP Foundation, and MetLife Foundation on these grants. (See our resource guide to get started: Because We're Stronger Together.)
Generations United and Mentor Up are partnering on a youth-led intergenerational grant program to address the needs of vulnerable adults aged 50 and over. These Youth Jumpstart grants are aimed at providing youth (ages 13-25) an opportunity to take a leadership role in a project that supports older adults while building strong, healthy intergenerational communities. Learn more about the exciting work of our grantees here.
