Calling all high school students, older adults, teachers, and aging service providers!

In collaboration with Five Star Senior Living, and AARP the MIT AgeLab is bringing our annual OMEGA Summit online this October. Opportunities for Multigenerational Exchange, Growth and Action (OMEGA) was created by the MIT AgeLab to support the development and growth of student programs and clubs that connect high school students with older adults.

On Saturday, October 31, 2020 from 1PM - 3PM EDT, we are convening students, older adults and professionals passionate about both groups of people to talk about the power of sustainable intergenerational programs, and the role students can play in leading and creating these initiatives for themselves in their own communities.

The OMEGA Summit is an excellent opportunity for students to earn service or volunteer hours, meet others from across the U.S., develop leadership skills, and learn about careers in aging. Live transcription and/or ASL interpretation during the event will be available. To learn more or RSVP, please visit our website (agelab.mit.edu/omega).
