Storytelling Contest Special Announcement! Due to the overwhelming response from people around the world, our fabulous judges are running a little behind. There are so many good stories they really want to thoroughly read each one so we have to delay our contest winner announcements. We will post the winners on Nov. 15th. Also, each winner will be notified prior to public announcement. Thanks for your patience and understanding. #StorytellingContest #IntergenerationMonth ... See MoreSee Less
Love this, take a close look at before and after interaction and participation in the Bridges program! #Intentionallyconnectgenerations #shareknowledge #friends #BridgesTogether ... See MoreSee Less
How do we know the Bridges program works? Take a look! A student's picture of an "old person" before and then after participating in the Bridges program. Look at the difference (from old, slow, lazy and lonely to kind, curious, funny and "my friend") -- and imagine the ripple effects!
Becoming friends with someone outside your age group can be rewarding. Most of our friends are within the same age group which is natural – many of our close relationships are made in places like school, college, Mommy and Me groups, etc. but it’s less common that people form genuine friendships that span a generation. Intergenerational friendships can offer unique benefits. An older friend can offer wisdom and advice based on experiences and a younger generation friend can offer enthusiasm and wonderment, which can be contagious! #ShareKnowledge #IntergenerationMonth #Friends ...
