Connecting Generations

“Multigenerational relationships are integral to the Village’s mission of inclusiveness and well-being and we are committed to building age-integrated workplaces and communities.”

The Bridging Generations Professionals Board

Launched in 2019, The Bridging Generations Professionals Board is a group of young adults who firmly believe in the importance of multigenerational relationships at work and in the community. The events they have organized include book, short story and documentary discussion groups; intimate multigenerational dinners, community volunteerism, Trivia nights and more.
