Program Leaders: Dr. Nancy Peppard, Ph.D., Forensic Gerontologist and Founder of Out East Neighborhood Network & members of the South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) team
During this program we’ll explore ways to foster intergenerational engagement, investigate opportunities for volunteerism, and discuss intergenerational program development that encourages older adults and younger folks to learn together and from one another.
We welcome all ages – children 8 years or older, teens, adults of any age, as well as members and staff of the many organizations on the East End interested in developing programming that fosters cross-generational engagement. Come, chat with us, offer suggestions, and brain-storm new ideas.
This is the perfect opportunity to investigate, with others, how to enrich the lives of our youth, adults, and the growing 50+ population on the East End. This is a free program.
