North Shore Community Resources
June 7, 2022
Description / Summary
InterGenNS helps connect different generations on the North Shore while providing resources to help community partners establish intergenerational programming.
The InterGenNS project is supported by a steering committee and community group, both made up of active community members, as well as the SFU Graduate Research Team.
Connecting people of different ages has been shown to have a considerably positive effect on well-being, by actively reducing ageism and social isolation. InterGenNS is developing a Program Directory to help you connect with people across multiple generations, while also developing a Resource Hub that will help organisations and community groups develop and sustain more inter-generational initiatives throughout the North Shore. These projects have been launched in order to actively facilitate a North Shore community that is connected, inclusive, and age-friendly.
