Improving the lives of children,
youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration,
public policies, and programs.
Intergenerational shared sites are settings where children, youth and older adults participate in services and/or programs concurrently at the same site or on the same campus. Participants interact during regular planned intergenerational activities, as well as through informal encounters. In addition to shared sites, these settings can be referred to as intergenerational spaces, centers, care/day care, etc.
Generations United's created and operates the National Center on Intergenerational Shared Sites to provide training, technical assistance, toolkits and guides, program recognition, seed grants, networking, and other activities to support this emerging field.
