The mission of the Michigan Intergenerational Network is to promote intergenerational understanding through education, consultation, and information dissemination. We aim to be a hub for those interested in intergenerational relationships, in order to build communities, to network, to share models and best practices, and to locate resources. We are a non-profit, volunteer organization with members who come from the arts, education, gerontology, government, human services, social work, community development, and health care.
The Michigan Intergenerational Network sponsors conferences and workshops on intergenerational programs and models. The opportunities for bringing the generations together for mutual support, sharing, and social improvement are limited only by our creativity, imagination, commitment, and energy. Adults and elders bring experience, wisdom, time, nurturance, and acceptance. Youth brings enthusiasm, energy, optimism, idealism, hope, and innocence. Through bonding the generations we create a stronger, more caring, and supportive society.
