A new campaign powered by Encore.org will bring older and younger people together to make life better for all generations.
Building on innovative nationwide partnerships, Generation to Generation will mobilize adults 50+ to show up for young people who need more support — and advance the national conversation on what can be accomplished when generations come together.
The campaign will regularly feature organizations and opportunities to connect with young people. Mentoring is the first theme, with others following.
Young people thrive with the support of caring adults in their lives.
Older adults have abundant skills and life experience to share.
Schools and youth organizations, often stretched for resources, need an infusion of human talent.
