  1. Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly Boston
    The mission of CitySites is to build connections across the generations through regular and ongoing social engagement between older and younger program participants. CitySites offers weekly intergenerational events in senior housing and senior centers throughout Boston. Service-learning and community-engagement college students are matched with sites where they organize and host activities, which are directed by older and younger participants. CitySites activities include language exchanges/ESL assistance, Tech Cafes, creative writing, story shares, games, adult coloring, and arts and crafts. Our intergenerational programs are multicultural and frequently multilingual. In bringing older and younger people together, we strengthen the social connections of program participants as well as the larger community by building bridges across generational, educational, cultural, economic, and linguistic differences.
