Intergenerational Center



The Intergenerational Center, created in 1979, strengthens communities by bringing generations together to address critical concerns and creating opportunities for lifelong civic engagement. The Center is part of the College of Health Professions and Social Work at Temple University. The knowledge and experience we have accumulated enables us to develop, evaluate and replicate innovative programs, offer high quality training and consultation, and conduct research that examines the impact of our work and identifies promising practices. We are proud to serve as a national and international resource for organizations and communities.
