Recipes For Intergenerational Success

Bridges Together is pleased to present these creative ideas to engage, entertain, and strengthen families, organizations, and communities. Enjoy!

To help plan your Intergenerational Awareness Month event:

We’ve compiled loads of resources — we call them Recipes for Intergenerational Success — to help you plan an event! Take a look below — we’ve divided them into Detailed Plans (where we’ve spelled out the nitty-gritty of an entire event) and Springboards. (Resources designed to provide inspiration for you to plan your own, customized event.)

Either way, you’ll want to print out our One-Time Event Recipe for Success, which gives you a template for planning an event that flows and allows for meaningful intergenerational engagement! Our Steps to Create an Intergenerational (IG) Program in Your Community sheet is a great place to start.
