GENERATION TO GENERATION TAMPA BAY

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THE YOUTH OF TAMPA BAY

Tampa Bay Generation to GenerationGeneration to Generation Tampa Bay is a regional innovation partner in a national five year campaign, launched in 2016 by Encore.org. The goal of this national campaign is to mobilize one million adults over the age of 50 in a purposeful movement to improve the lives of children in our country.

We believe that older adults who have the time, talent and experience can be our greatest asset in tackling some of the critical challenges facing the children in our community. Our campaign will advance the conversation on what can be accomplished when the young and the old come together, but also to set a new standard of community involvement and volunteer engagement of older adults.

We’re launching Gen2Gen Movies & Mentors, a contest that will tap your inner movie buff to crowdsource the 10 best intergenerational mentoring movies of all time, then turn that enthusiasm into more mentors for kids in real life.

Nine million young people are growing up in America without a mentor. With this contest, let’s start a national conversation about how each of us can make a difference in the life of just one of them.

In a few months time, with your help, we’ll have identified the top 10 Gen2Gen mentoring movies of all time — and thousands more kids will have mentors.

So what’s your favorite Gen2Gen mentoring movie? Nominate it today for a chance to win $500 in movie tickets!

Get the popcorn ready. This is going to be fun!

REFRAMING THE IDEA OF NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

For the last four years, I have sat down during this holiday “mid week” to write a New Year’s blog.  Today, I was very inspired and excited to read Ken Druck’s blog, which aligned exactly with my own thoughts regarding New Year’s resolutions. This year I have decided to reframe the whole idea of making New Years resolutions.  I believe that before we charge ahead setting new goals and figuring … [Read More...]
