Generation to Generation Summer Challenge
Every year, schools go on break over the summer. Many kids jump for joy. But not all.For some, summer is a time when learning stops, meals are scarce, and caring adults during the day are less accessible. Those that need a summer job don’t always know where to look. Safe places for exercise and play may not exist.

GENERATION TO GENERATION TAMPA BAY

GENERATION TO GENERATION CAMPAIGN
Generation to Generation Tampa Bay is a two year community intergenerational initiative that is focused on engaging older adults to work with children in underserved communities in Tampa Bay. We believe that this largely untapped human capital resource can improve the lives of children in our community. Tampa Bay was selected as a local intergenerational impact zone as part of the larger Encore.org national Generation to Generation Campaign.
