Intergenerational Programs: A Resource for Community Renewal.
A four-part publication places intergenerational programming in the larger context of community renewal and well-being. Part I, "The Basics: What, Who, and Why," contains two articles. The first, by Kathlyn Thorp, defines intergenerational activities and considers organizations which should be involved in such activities and possible benefits, while the second article, by Carol H. Tice, considers the issue of well-being from an intergenerational perspective. Part II examines issues and answers through the following articles: "Five Questions to Test Your Intergenerational Idea" (Tom Bird); "Intergenerational Programs: Getting Started" (James P. Firman and Anita Stowell); "Community Planning for Intergenerational Programming: A Model for Community-Wide Program Development" (Catherine Ventura-Merkel); "So You Want to Start Something" (Sallie Johnson); "Training for Intergenerational Programs" (Sally Newman and Edgar Weinsberg); "Systems Intervention: An Effective Approach to Intergenerational Program Development" (Nancy Z. Henkin, Miriam S. Spector, and Steven L. Tunick); and "Stages in Intergenerational Development" (Kathlyn Thorp). Part III contains articles on program ideas: a Tulsa, Oklahoma, local government internship program, a Rochester, Minnesota, senior citizen food co-op, a Philadelphia intergenerational theater troupe, a San Francisco senior citizen school volunteer program, the Madison, Wisconsin, program SCOPE (Students, Community, Older People, Parents and Educators), and other ideas. Part IV contains resource lists. (LP)
