Get Ready for Grandparents Day!
Grandparents Day is right around the corner and will take place on September 12. Grandparents Day is an annual event hosted by Generations United, one of USAging's partners, and encourages people of all ages to #DoSomethingGrand by engaging with another generation.
To help encourage participation in Grandparents Day, Generations United has created a toolkit that AAAs and other organizations can use to participate in Grandparents Day. You can also develop your own ideas—be creative with innovative ways to show appreciation for grandparents and older adults in your community. Need help spreading the word? Check out the social media toolkit from Generations United and use it to promote Grandparents Day in your community.
Generations United is also a valuable partner in USAging's social engagement initiative, engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults. Visit the new engAGED Innovations Hub to access summaries of intergenerational social engagement programs and learn how you can implement these in your agencies.
