Intergenerational shared sites - programs that serve and engage older and younger people in the same physical location – provide unique opportunities for ongoing and sustained intergenerational engagement. In this webinar, you will learn about intergenerational shared site programs and how they can address social isolation, combat ageism, and reduce costs.  You will hear examples of how Area Agencies on Aging across the country are supporting and exploring these types of intergenerational initiatives.  You will have access to new resources to help with intergenerational program development and expansion.
