Intergenerational Programs Webinar
Intergenerational connections benefit both older and younger people, as well as the communities they live in. Bringing older and younger people together contributes to understanding and respect between generations, and research has shown that intergenerational programs increase well-being and self-esteem of participants, as well as reduce ageism and elder abuse.
This webinar profiles three Canadian intergenerational initiatives: LINKages Society of Alberta, Grandpals, and InterGenNS. In addition, the Intergenerational Evaluation Toolkit is introduced, which provides tools to help meet the needs of program providers and researchers committed to demonstrating the impact of intergenerational programming and understanding the practices by which outcomes are achieved.
