AARP members and guests are invited to Finding Friends of All Ages: The Benefits of Intergenerational Play, a webinar offered by the National Strong Museum of Play that explores the proven benefits of intergenerational relationships.

All ages and generations can build relationships that enhance social-emotional and communication skills, self-confidence, trust, a sense of purpose, and a connection to the broader community.


Event Details:

This webinar will be great for parents and grandparents who want to connect with their own children and grandchildren as well as with the young people in their neighborhoods or workplaces to stay connected in a meaningful way.

Participants will learn:

  • How to create environments in which trusting, attached intergenerational relationships can develop; 
  • How to overcome common barriers that prevent intergenerational relationships from developing, including mindsets that can prevent us from genuinely engaging with children and young people; 
  • Suggestions for questions older adults can ask their younger companions, activities they can participate in together, and practical strategies they can try for making their younger companions feel seen, heard, and appreciated;
  • How to find and cultivate these relationships
