  1. Eskaton
    Eskaton’s Intergenerational Initiative — with the theme “One Nation, Under Age” — encourages positive intergenerational relations by connecting the organization’s community living residents and homebased support participants with local schoolchildren and young adults. The Initiative features a wide array of mutually beneficial learning opportunities, as well as social, cultural and entertainment components. The Initiative’s premier program, Eskaton Kids Connection, partners a number of Eskaton communities with local elementary schools to create intergenerational friendships. Students and their older adult “buddies” meet regularly to read, write and share with one another. Eskaton also collaborates with California State University, Sacramento to offer gerontology, nursing and social work students the opportunity to earn credits and first-hand experience while living with older adults in an Eskaton community. Eskaton communities also sponsor “Senior Ball” events with local high schools; provide student internships; host art shows and student performances; plan and maintain gardens; and support local scout troops.

The program unites youth with older adult Life Skill Coaches to support the development of work and life skills.

    Imagine being a child sitting next to a “grandma” or “grandpa” and learning how to play bingo, make bread together, or create puppets and put on a show. The Wirtzie’s Intergenerational Program is optional, but if you choose to participate, this unique program offers your child daily planned, intentional activities where children and seniors come together to grow, learn about themselves and others and form relationships that can be life changing. Studies have shown that children participating in Intergenerational Programs demonstrate higher levels of social acceptance, willingness to help, empathy and ability to self-regulate.

  8. The Yukon-Koyukuk Elder Assisted Living Consortium
    The much-needed facility allowed seniors, who previously had to travel 150 miles for assisted living services, to receive these services within their tribal community. Keeping elders in the community has also allowed the creation of intergenerational programs in which local youth help elders with housekeeping responsibilities and elders share their knowledge of tribal culture and traditions.
