Cover, Best Practices in Intergenerational Programming: Practice 4

This publication is available in PDF format only.

Intergenerational programs are most effective when participants are prepared ahead of time and reflect on activities afterward.

It is important for staff members to inform intergenerational participants of the nature of the activity and the expectations concerning their roles and responsibilities. Describing the activity to participants ahead of time allows them to mentally prepare for the experience.
