CHAI Intergenerational Initiatives
Intergenerational programming benefits everyone, from children to older adults, including families, communities, and society at large.
There is a great opportunity to achieve equity and social justice with intergenerational programming.
NYC Intergenerational Working Group
With the support of the Eisner Foundation, CHAI has partnered with organizations across NYC to form a working group made up of other leaders from these organizations. We unite around the need to systematically and collaboratively address intergenerational programming challenges and opportunities locally and nationally
Healthy Aging Specialization
In 2023, CHAI launched the Healthy Aging Specialization at the NYU Silver School of Social Work to build a strong cadre of social work scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and advocates to increase opportunities for health and longevity for individuals and society.
Home Sharing Program
Intergenerational Home Share Program has a core value of intergenerational cohesion, bringing together different generations to foster relationships and create understanding. Our program aims to promote the affordability of higher education, equity among a growing diverse population, and to facilitate social connections with the next generation of NYU students.
CHAI uses social media to build awareness about and enthusiasm for the power and impact of intergenerational approaches and solutions, including uplifting organizations leading this work. We are always seeking content to promote about inclusive intergenerational initiatives.
