COVID-19 and Intergenerational Shared Sites: Lessons on promoting connections between young and old during a pandemic and beyond

October 16, 2020

Generations United and The Eisner Foundation will present a one-hour virtual briefing on the value of intergenerational shared sites in serving young and old throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Recognized in the Older Americans Act, intergenerational shared sites - or settings where children, youth, and older adults participate in services and/or programs concurrently in the same space - have proven to increase well-being for people of all ages while enhancing organizational and community resources. The program will include an overview of what has been learned from shared sites during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and speakers from shared sites that have adapted and/or served during the Pandemic.

Speakers include:

  • Lynette M. Fraga, CEO, Child Care Aware® of America and Member of Generations United Board of Directors
  • Trent Stamp, CEO, The Eisner Foundation
  • Donna M. Butts, Executive Director, Generations United
  • U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Pennsylvania
  • Samantha Koehler, Senior Policy Aide, U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging
