resource image

Intergenerational shared sites are intentionally designed places that provide service and programs to multiple generations concurrently and foster meaningful cross-age relationships. Shared sites have built-in opportunities for cost-efficiencies in terms of space, personnel, rent, and other programming costs. This toolkit is based on research and experiences of practitioners in the intergenerational field and offers ten modules from planning to sustaining and intergenerational shared space.
