Intergenerational Service-Learning

Youth Today's article Generation Rap
As youth and elder populations rise, intergenerational programs grow and reap benefits for both.

Once you get past the creepy Harold and Maude reference, you can appreciate the writers effort to share insight and promising practice. Some of my favorite intergenerational projects have focused honoring our World War II Vets. This article goes beyond honoring vets and caprturing oral histories, which I still believe are fantastic, to sharing mutual reciprocal service projects. So thank you Jessica Weiss for helping us all get a few more ideas about how to connect and reap the benefits of these two expanding populations.
