Youth Jumpstart Grants

Generations United encourages youth (ages 13-25) to start, expand and lead intergenerational programs in their communities. We are pleased to be currently working with Mentor Up, a new way to make a difference from AARP Foundation, and MetLife Foundation on these grants. (See our resource guide to get started: Because We're Stronger Together.)

Generations United and Mentor Up are partnering on a youth-led intergenerational grant program to address the needs of vulnerable adults aged 50 and over. These Youth Jumpstart grants are aimed at providing youth (ages 13-25) an opportunity to take a leadership role in a project that supports older adults while building strong, healthy intergenerational communities.  Learn more about the exciting work of our grantees here.

Learn more about the Generations United/MetLife Foundation Youth Jumpstart Grantees who are developing youth-led projects designed to promote intergenerational solutions to societal challenges and build stronger communities.
