Intergenerational Programs: Drawing on the Resources of Youth and Elderly

March 6, 2001

Intergenerational programs recruit older adults to work with young people, train children to serve older adults, bring youth and elders together to serve others, or serve youth and the elderly in the same facilities.  This Issue Focus highlights foundation funding in this area, ranging from the support of intergenerational mentoring programs to the development of initiatives to gather data on the effects of intergenerational programs on health.
