Senior-Youth Interaction Initiative and Generations United

What is Generations United?

According to http://www.gu.org/ABOUTUS.aspx,

“Generations United’s mission is to improve the lives of children, youth, and older adults through intergenerational collaboration, public policies and programs for the enduring benefit of all. For nearly three decades, Generations United has been the catalyst for policies and practices stimulating cooperation and collaboration among generations, evoking the vibrancy, energy and sheer productivity that result when people of all ages come together. We believe that we can only be successful in the face of our complex future if generational diversity is regarded as a national asset and fully leveraged.”

This mission statement is analogous to the Senior-Youth Interaction Initiative Program. Make sure to read their page to find out more about age segregation awareness!
