The Grandparent Program of Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell, Massachusetts

EDITOR’S NOTE: Each week, we feature intergenerational program ideas that were tried and successful. This series is a tool to highlight various age-optimized programs and practices. The program descriptions are provided by representatives of the programs. Inclusion in this series does not imply Generations United’s endorsement or recommendation, but rather encourages ideas to inspire other programs.

In honor of Women’s History Month, this week cool idea is The Grandparent Program of Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell, MA. Girls Inc. Girls visit the residents of the Horn Home, River Valley House, the Community Family Adult Day Health Center, and DYouville Manor.

(Check our archives for parts 1–90 | non-archived: 1, 2, 3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and12.)

Girls Inc. members and residents become acquainted, play games, make crafts, sing, and generally have a great time together! The program is offered once or twice per week.

Got something cool you tried that was successful? Share the inspiration. You can also post them to our Intergenerational Connections Facebook Group. We want to highlight innovative age-optimized programs and practices through our blog, social media and weekly e-newsletter!
