Improving the lives of children,
youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration,
public policies, and programs.
Founded in 1986, Generations United is the leading intergenerational membership organization in the United States. Originally created by the National Council on Aging and the Child Welfare League of America, Generations United flourished as a collaborative effort. Soon after, AARP and the Children’s Defense Fund joined the organization’s leadership. We quickly grew to become a coalition of more than 100 national organizations seeking a shared, mutually supportive agenda.
Generations United incorporated in 1997 as an independent entity. It continues today as the country’s only membership organization promoting intergenerational public policies, programs, and strategies whose membership represents more than 70 million Americans.
