Reaching Across the Ages: Intergenerational Innovations to Protect Children and Support Families and Communities (Workshop 58)
Presenters share information on innovative programming that creatively engages the growing resource of older adults to protect children and support communities. The workshop discussion focuses on ways to enhance programs through intergenerational strategies, including older adult volunteer programs, youth service programs, and shared sites, e.g., co-located adult day care and child care programs. Additionally, the session discusses ways to access the growing resource of older adults who are able and eager to contribute in meaningful ways to filling gaps in services provided to children, youth, and families.
