A Message from Sen. Bob Casey: I would like to thank Seniors4Kids for all that they do in engaging seniors to ensure that all young children have access to quality early education. This organization has reached a number of notable achievements, including securing 13 leading national aging organizations to sign a letter of support to include Pre-K education in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. See full statement.

Generations United's Seniors4Kids raises the voices of adults age 50 and older in support of policies affecting children and youth.


About Us

Since 2005, Generations United has worked to raise the voices of older adults in support of policies benefiting children and youth through Seniors4Kids. Over the years, we have worked with community leaders and grassroots volunteers in six states to increase the availability of high-quality early care and education. In New York, we helped spur the New York State Department of Education to allocate $4 million from its Race to the Top grant to support QUALITYstarsNY implementation in lowest-achieving districts including Yonkers and Rochester. Beginning in 2014, Seniors4Kids is focusing on significantly building the national voice of older adults as advocates for early investments in children. Contact Emily Duda for more information.

Current Policies

Re-authorization of key national policies like the Child Care and Development Block Grant, Elementary and Secondary Education Act, HeadStart and others will have significant impact on resources available to children and their families. There's never been a better time to harness the power of older adults advocating for children an focus those efforts at the federal level.
