Evidence-Based and Promising Practices Promote Successful Intergenerational Service Delivery

Professor of Social Work and Health and Aging Policy Fellow, Dr. Shannon Jarrott, partnered with Commit to Connect and ACL, on a synthesis of more than 130 studies, literature guides and reports related to intergenerational practice to connect diverse youth (24 and younger) to older persons (50 and older). The literature review highlights promising practices and evidence-based strategies of intergenerational programs that can assist community-based organizations serving youths and/or older adults to improve social connections across generations.

Check out the full Intergenerational Literature Review to learn more about recent practices and strategies that could be replicated in your community.
