We are so excited to announce that we are teaming up with Sisterhood of Strong to bring you a new meet-up offering! Introducing our Wisdom Walk – A Guided Intergenerational Stroll. When Theresa approached me about teaming up to host this event, I loved the idea, but as I started researching intergenerational activities, I loved her idea even more! A study by Generations United emphasizes the importance of intergenerational programming:
“…participation in intergenerational programs and meaningful cross-age relationships may decrease social isolation and increase older adults’ sense of belonging, self-esteem, and well-being, while also improving social and emotional skills of children and youth participants.”
