  1. Orchard Cove
    Since 2010, we have been gratified to participate in a wonderful collaboration with the Jewish Family Services' Program, called Kesher-13. Kesher-13 supports our growing multigenerational program by facilitating relationships between middle school students and Orchard Cove Residents (seniors). In addition, we have a very active working relationship with Temple Israel of Sharon, MA. The program's name is "Telem", with the objective placed upon the youth of the temple performing community service by visiting Orchard Cove residents and interfacing them through various programs, including arts & crafts, Jewish Community Life, health & wellness and music therapy.

    Generations Incorporated engages older adults (ages 50+) as literacy volunteers to children in kindergarten through grade three. We serve in 17 public elementary schools and after-school programs (called partner sites) in low-income communities. Our highly trained volunteers provide one-on-one and small group literacy support to students – all are at-risk of school failure and 80% are low-income. Our results-driven programs generate strong intergenerational relationships that get results and improve lives.

  10. Jumpstart Community Corps
    Jumpstart Community Corps creates meaningful intergenerational relationships between preschool-age children and older adults living in low-income communities. These relationships help children gain essential language, literacy, and social emotional skills, while simultaneously transforming the lives of the older adult volunteers who work with them. Jumpstart Community Corps facilitates the creation of these relationships by recruiting and training teams of six to ten older adult volunteers, called Corps members, to deliver Jumpstart’s research-based language and literacy curriculum to children in pre-kindergarten classrooms throughout a school year.
