Intergenerational activities do more than accomplish a goal.  They connect generations in ways that would otherwise not be possible.  Time and again intergenerational events have benefited older adult and youth participants.  Hear how Mark pulled together high school students and older adults from the Gig harbor area to prepare emergency kits for low income seniors on the Key Peninsula.  Brainstorm on how opportunities like this – and others – might be replicated in Pierce County.
