Mission Statement

GrowIN expands on traditional models of IG programming and offers programs for ALL ages and populations. Our programs are offered virtually and through in-person formats to increase accessibility. Programs will take place virtually, at supporting organizations, and anywhere in between throughout the Columbus, OH area. Programs are based off of community members interests; anyone can request through our website. All programs can be modified based off of participants abilities so that anyone can be successful at GrowIN.

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.


Here is our current list of collaborators/partnerships working with us to create and develop programs

CAPA- Columbus Association of the Performing Arts
Village in the Ville
Move Your Music Forward
Jazzy Music Therapy- Jennifer Yurkovich
