Intergenerational programs consist of planned activities that bring together different age groups and often involve the sharing of skills, knowledge or experiences between generations. Through participation in intergenerational activities, children, youth, younger adults and seniors/older adults may be less likely to form ageist attitudes and appreciate the knowledge, experience and friendship that can be experienced by interactions across generations. The Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development is seeking the input of individuals and organizations into what should be included in a guide to support intergenerational programming and activities with the aim of making the guide a useful tool to bring generations together and support the continued development of age-friendly communities in Newfoundland and Labrador.
To inform the development of an Intergenerational Program Guide for Newfoundland and Labrador, the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development is seeking input from stakeholders and individuals.
