The Intergenerational Center at Temple University

The Intergenerational Center at Temple University

The Intergenerational Center, created in 1979, strengthens communities by bringing generations together to address critical concerns and creating opportunities for lifelong civic engagement. The Center is part of the College of Health Professions and Social Work at Temple University. The knowledge and experience we have accumulated enables us to develop, evaluate and replicate innovative programs, offer high quality training and consultation, and conduct research that examines the impact of our work and identifies promising practices. We are proud to serve as a national and international resource for organizations and communities.

Programs:
Since 1979, the Center has created and implemented innovative intergenerational program models that mobilize people of all ages to support one another and address critical social issues in their communities. Programs are both national and local in scope. Over 4,000 people participate annually in our Philadelphia-based programs which help caregiving families, support children and youth, foster immigrant integration, and build community capacity. Supporting our local programs are 550 volunteers – 300 older adults and 250 students. Through our national initiatives and training/technical assistance efforts, thousands more are involved.

Services are offered on-site and online (webinars, e-courses) using a variety of materials and tools created by Center staff.
