Using the evidence-based national Village Movement model, A Little Help mobilizes community volunteers provide non-medical services to neighbors while forging meaningful connections. Older adults receive help with a variety of services, including transportation, housework, and friendly visits, and are invited to engage in regularly scheduled local and intergenerational events and programming. Intergenerational connection is at the heart of each service and event provided by A Little Help, and we also create intentional intergenerational programming. Programs like Teen Team, which pairs middle/high school students with older mentors, highlight the reciprocity of intergenerational relationships. Both older and younger neighbors are providing value and support to one another, with students helping around the home and yard and older members sharing stories and providing mentorship, and both feel that they are the volunteer. A Little Help strives to break down the siloes that segment our society and strengthen community for people of all ages. Reciprocity exemplified when our older neighbors provide presence, rootedness, mentorship, and wisdom to younger members of A Little Help. Intergenerational interdependence creates a beautiful community.
