The GOLD Project© is an original, innovative intergenerational program embracing the process of growing older with grace and dignity. The GOLD Project© seeks to enhance a sense of awareness in children about growing older and the value of elders by creating intergenerational conversations in local schools. Visits to 2nd grade classrooms provide opportunities for our members to share their life experiences with children, helping to bridge the gap between young and old, increasing compassion, and reducing ageism.
The GOLD Project© is a treasure trove of wonderful stories, experiences, and relationships—one of our most effective tools in educating the community about Friendship Center’s work with dependent elders and their caregivers.
