Across Generations

Submitted by on July 10, 2018 – 4:29 pmNo Comment
Research shows that positive interactions between young and old are good for everyone. Children and teens receive needed mentoring and attention, while older folks benefit from an increased sense of purpose and engagement. The many ways to bring young people into your life include caring for your grandchildren. But if you have no grandchildren or none living close by, there are lots of opportunities to share your wisdom and time with the young.
LWN Coordinator, Diane Martin, recently worked with Lesley University design students on an interactive, online form targeted towards older people. What a fun project! Contact Diane if you would like to help for 2-4 hours with a similar project in the fall semester by emailing her here.
