The following resources can help you learn more about intergenerational efforts.
Are you interested in incorporating intergenerational efforts into the work you do but aren’t sure where to start? This Intergenerational Program Planner, developed by Dr. Nancy Henkin, an expert in the field, can help you and your organization formulate plans, assess readiness, identify possible partners, and develop strategies to make your ideas a reality.
To assess the need for intergenerational connection within your community, these two questionnaires – one designed for older adults and the other for young adults/youth - can be helpful tools. They not only help gauge the level of interest in connecting with different generations, but also identify specific, desired intergenerational activities. Feel free to add your organization’s logo, edit these tools as needed, and distribute them to clients and other members of your community as you plan your intergenerational efforts.
