Connecting Generations – A Toolkit for Planning Intergenerational Events

Intergenerational programs and activities that bridge the generation gap help to break down barriers among people of varying ages and address issues such as social isolation, ageism, and misunderstanding. Creating supportive environments which enhance opportunities for the sharing of ideas, knowledge and experience will build upon community strengths and move New Brunswick toward creating more Age-Friendly Communities (AFC).

This Intergenerational Toolkit will help communities and organizations engage children, youth and seniors in effectively hosting intergenerational projects. It contains practical information and resources to support educators, care providers, community groups and agencies in coordinating successful intergenerational initiatives.
