"To bridge the gap between seniors and young people by offering programs that provide POSITIVE ROLE MODELS for our youth."
Grandparents Around the World is an organization of independent seniors who continue to be involved in the life of their communities and families. We provide information, resources, and opportunities for seniors to keep active and remain inspired. We serve as a reminder of the older generation’s value to society. We pay particular attention to supporting and fostering relationships between the old and the young, as we think those relationships are enriching to all.
Grandparents Around the World (GATW) is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization based in the Bronx, with members and participants from all the boroughs and as well as the outlying suburban areas of New York City. Our membership reflects the ethnic and cultural diversity that is New York. Anyone who has the desire is welcome to join us, most of our activities are offered free of charge.
The grandparents around the world monthly forums are most informative, interesting and innovative.
Most of all they are fun and sharing is the operative word among members and guests. All ages are respected and welcomed.
