What We Do

Generations United works to create a country where all generations are valued, respected and supported.

We work to create a country where public policy and programs connect generations instead of separate or isolate them; and where the oldest and youngest members of our society work together to achieve transformational change.

To reach this goal, Generations United works with our member organizations, partners and stakeholders, in the following areas of focus: Grandfamilies, Community Building and Intergenerational Programs & Spaces.

Projects

Generations United coordinates a number of signature projects to strengthen intergenerational connections and improve the lives of children, youth and older adults in our communities.

Programs
Generations United is a strong voice supporting the development and expansion of intergenerational programs bringing children, youth and older adults together. We serve as the clearinghouse for information on different types of intergenerational programs and a champion making the case for local programs across the county and around the world.

Public Policy

Generations United advocates directly for federal and state policies and programs that build intergenerational connections and meet the needs of babies, children, youth and older adults. We also provide information and tools to engage Generations United’s broad and diverse membership to protect and prioritize investments that build toward a more secure future for all generations.

Public Policy
Generations United believes that public policy should meet the needs of all generations and that resources are more wisely used when they connect generations rather than separate them. We promote an intergenerational approach to framing public policies that impact children, youth and older adult issues.
