  7. Partners in Rhyme: Using poetry to bring generations today
    Partners in Rhyme (PIR) is a six-week intergenerational poetry program where older adults and teens gather in small groups to read, discuss, and write poetry. The program is held in high school English classes or community centers in the greater Boston area. Each session consults works from contemporary and classic poets on wellness and social-emotional learning themes such as gratitude, mindfulness, resilience, and personal refuges. After a guided discussion that focuses on personal responses to poems, everyone does some reflective and creative writing. There is a poetry reading at the end of the program open to the public. The goals include: PIR Goals: (1) Bring generations together using poetry to facilitate meaningful discussions and develop deep connections. In the process, reduce social isolation, shed stereotypes that each age group have for the other, and cultivate compassion in teens for older adults. (2) Expand social and emotional learning (SEL) by selecting poems to explore various SEL topics. Help participants develop empathy and communication skills as they engage with people outside their typical peer- and age-groups. (3) Provide a novel experience with poetry allowing poetry-phobic participants to develop an appreciation for the art. Keyword: Program of Merit
