Evaluation Research Repository on Intergenerational Programs

The Evaluation Research Repository on Intergenerational Programs, a new resource from Generations United and EMIL, is an open access digital collection of research outputs to assist researchers and evaluators, practitioners, and policy makers in assessing intergenerational programs. The goals of the repository are to expand the intergenerational knowledge base, assist practitioners in their work, stimulate legislative development, and encourage collaboration and dialogue between authors, institutions and information users.

The first version of the Evaluation Research Repository on Intergenerational Programs includes 56 entries, which include an abstract and a link to the full text. There are plans for a second phase of the Repository which includes adding more entries and adding translational research notes to each entry.

To access abstracts, you can either search for keyword terms or by checking on the following categories:

  • Art, Oral History & Culture
  • Health & Wellness
  • Building Social Capital
  • Perceptions of Ageing
  • Civic Engagement & Volunteering
  • Policy
  • Community Development
  • Programming
  • Education
  • Research
  • Environment
  • Theory & Practice
