TimeSlips Announces NextGen Intergenerational Pilot Sites

August 27, 2019

In partnership with LeadingAge, we are very excited to announce the launch of our NextGen program! NextGen is an expansion of TimeSlips programming into high schools, youth-serving programs, and colleges/universities. This summer 13 NextGen pilot partner faculty and staff got trained and certified in TimeSlips and are now prepared to guide students through their own experience over the coming school year. These schools and youth programs will collaborate with aging services partners/LeadingAge member organizations that will host students for hands on creative programming with elders. The two main goals of this intergenerational work are to reduce the stigma of aging and dismantle stereotypes held between elders and youth as well as to increase the number of young people going into the field of creative aging. Read more here or find out about the work that some of the NextGen students will be embarking on this fall by subscribing to our TimeSlips newsletter at the bottom of this page.
