Community Planning for Intergenerational Programming. Volume VIII.
Ventura-Merkel, Catherine; Lidoff, Lorraine
Designed as an effort to gather, package, and disseminate useful programmatic information on aging education, this publication is divided into seven substantive sections. Following a preface and acknowledgements, an introduction presents a model of intergenerational programming, a definition of an intergenerational activities committe, purposes of such a committee, a rationale for intergenerational programming, and program barriers and benefits. A second section describes how to use the model. Planning steps, organizational steps, and implementation steps are described in the next three sections. Suggestions from experts in intergenerational programming are provided in section six. The final section contains resources for intergenerational programming, including readings, program examples, and organizations; and general references on planning, public relations, fundraising, evaluation, and committee development. An appendix consists of a sample agenda and sample minutes from an intergenerational activities committee. (LP)
