Intergenerational community building that focuses on connecting children and youth with older adults to foster stronger social bonds and build respect across age groups.

These connections help individuals of different generations cultivate friendships, understanding and compassion and collectively strengthening ties to the community. Encouraging intergenerational relationships helps to prevent social isolation.  Social isolation makes people of all ages vulnerable to loneliness, depression and/or abuse.

Resources provided here are meant to inspire the creation of intergenerational projects for CRNs.

BC CRN’s Intergenerational Community Guide includes activities, and additional resources to show how intergenerational practice creates the potential for individuals of all-ages to demonstrate that it’s not right to mistreat anyone.
