Abstract

Without question, there is a growing interest in intergenerational programs and related policy thrusts. During the past 30 years, foundations, nonprofit organiza­ tions, and other private efforts have actively promoted intergenerational program models, and public funds have facilitated the spread of various approaches to inter­ generational service. The title of the 1995 White House Conference on AgingAmerica Now and into the 21st Century: Generations Aging Together with Indepen­ dence, Opportunity, and Dignity-speaks to the growing influence of intergenera­ tional programs and themes in policy discussions about both younger and older Americans.
