Generations Connect Contra Costa is a project designed to bring younger and older people together online to learn about online safety, strengthen intergenerational relationships, and implement a project together.
Why is an intergenerational approach important? 
  • Younger and older people often report feeling lonely and a sense of isolation. 
  • Younger and older persons are at increased risk of online safety issues such as scams.
  • Intergenerational approaches build community connectedness
This initiative aims to address these issues and provide a platform for people of all ages to come together, build relationships, and be supported as change agents to prevent interpersonal violence in our communities. 
Generations Connect will run January – March 2021. It will include 10 virtual sessions focused on online safety, intergenerational leadership, and result in projects that teams develop and implement together. Sessions will run for 1 1/2 hours online. Stipends will be provided. If people face a barrier to participation due to technology, support will also be provided.
People are invited to apply to participate in the project here – https://tinyurl.com/generationsconnect
