Description

GrowIN- Intergenerational Community Programming was established January 2021 in lieu of the pandemic- we saw a need due to the disconnect of our community in result of the pandemic. We also saw a need to be the light of connecting not only different generations together, but other populations of different backgrounds, abilities through meaningful opportunities of engagement.

We are new, and are establishing more programs as time goes on. By collaborating with organizations in the area, we are able to consult and creat Intergenerational programs by utilizing their skills and resources and elevate their organization and populations. Such programs we have currently are the following:

IG exercise programs
IG crafting series
IG 4H basic training series
IG open mic night with music therapist
IG music jam session with Worthington Jammers
Technology learning series
IG game nights
IG sensory reminiscing groups

And so many more programs on the docket being developed.
