Introducing...The Greater Phoenix Region!

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is part 3 of our series on the 2014 Best Intergenerational Communities award winners. Read part 1 and part 2.

Known as the "Valley of the Sun," the Greater Phoenix region accommodates its over 3.4 million residents through intergenerational programs in 24 cities and towns. 

A talented and committed group of cross-sector leaders share responsibility for intergenerational communities.

Juanita Guidry Copeland, the Ambassadors of Compassion (AOC) program facilitator at Maya High School, saw the benefits first-hand while preparing high school students for the work world.

The retired training professional noted how the experience also benefits people like her.

"Seniors are enhanced when they help young people while the recipients learn from those whose lives have been lived successfully." Stay tuned for next week, when we introduce Village of Shorewood, WI.
