The Intergenerational Center (IGC) strengthens communities by bringing generations together to address critical concerns

IGC began in 1979 as part of the College of Health Professions and Social Work at Temple University. We have innovative programs that offer high quality training and consultation in order to strengthen students and caregivers in our community. We also study the impact of our work and identify research-based practices that have been proven successful. For more information, please contact Patience Lehrman at patience@temple.edu
