Many immigrant and refugee communities are experiencing challenges as they try to sustain meaningful  cross-age relationships. Language barriers; differing expectations, values and beliefs; and competing demands can lead to feelings of isolation among elders and youth. Ethnic–based organizations and others working with immigrant and refugee communities can play a vital role in fostering mutual understanding across generations and creating culturally appropriate opportunities for meaningful intergenerational interaction. International Intergenerational expert, Nancy Henkin, will be hosting a FREE workshop:



•       Why connecting generations is important for the well-being of all generations

•       How to create activities that build mutual respect and understanding across ages

•       Examples of successful intergenerational programs in immigrant and refugee communities

•       Effective outreach strategies to engage youth and elders in cross-age experiences

•       Ways to engage elders and youth in meaningful roles within your organization

•       Common challenges (e.g. funding, staffing, etc.) and ways to overcome them
