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
