The Intergenerational Project’s goals included:
- promoting improved life satisfaction and a sense of purpose and connectedness in the community for seniors;
- helping young children develop meaningful relationships, an image of aging that is healthy and active, and an opportunity to learn about the history of Niagara;
- making it easier for child care programs and seniors residents to work together; and
- the creation of a toolkit to support community agencies in the development of meaningful intergenerational programs.
