DONATE NOW to help improve the lives of children, youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration, public policies, and programs.
Unleash your creative energies and learn about the inventing process, then invent something yourself! As a grandparent or older adult volunteer, you can engage children and youth in fun but informative intergenerational invention projects.
The possibilities for intergenerational connections through inventions are limitless. With the support of the Verizon Foundation and resources on Thinkfinity.org, this guide provides brief activity descriptions geared toward a broad range of ages. We encourage you to submit additional suggestions and to connect with other older adults in an online user group for grandparents and volunteers with similar interests.
