Upcoming Events in Healthy Aging – April

Check out the following events that can help promote inclusive age- and dementia friendly communities!

This 60-minute session will answer your questions about Encore.org’s Generations Serving Together incentive grant to age-integrate national service.

Encore.org will award four $25,000 grants to co-generational initiatives that age-integrate national service or significantly expand or deepen existing work that brings younger and older AmeriCorps members and volunteers together to solve social problems. Grant recipients will participate in a powerful, virtual cohort experience, rooted in peer learning, shared challenges and problem solving, networking and mutual aid. Encore.org will also share stories of grantees’ work with its audience of supporters and media.
