The Inter-Generational Initiative
The Inter-generational Initiative helps increase youths aging awareness and develops a sense of caring and respect for the elderly. It also offers senior citizens an opportunity to share their childhood life experiences and their wisdom.
Intergenerational programs increase cooperation and interaction among people of different generations by sharing talents and resources throughout the age spectrum. Each person benefits and the community as a whole.
