HoCo Intergenerational Engagement
Community Resources and Services - Special Events/Projects

Description

Did you know that September is Intergenerational Awareness Month? It's a global movement that celebrates the mutual benefits of intergenerational relationships while bringing awareness to the importance of closing the gap between the generations.

As a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, many older people found themselves in isolation and were deprived of social connections from their family members, friends, and neighbors. Now more than ever we need to find ways to reconnect!

Therefore, Howard County Office on Aging & Independence is asking YOU to help the community reconnect by participating in intergenerational activities throughout the month of September.

By engaging with people of different ages, you will be making a difference in someone else's life and they will make a difference in yours! You never know what you may learn from them!

With your sign-up, you will receive an email with the list of intergenerational activities.
