The Intergenerational Outreach Choir
This week’s cool idea is the Intergenerational Outreach Choir (IOCC), which is based in several locations in Oregon. IOCC's mission is connecting generations through song.
(Check our archives for parts 1-59.)
They strive to bring together intergenerational members of community through the formation of community choirs, to empower people to develop and value their own voices, to foster mutual understanding and respect among people of all ages and backgrounds, and to be a service to the public through the sharing of music and song.
Got something cool you tried that was successful? Why not tweet your cool intergenerational ideas to #cooligideas? You can also post them to our Intergenerational Connections Facebook Group. We want to highlight innovative age-optimized programs and practices through our blog, social media and weekly e-newsletter! Share the inspiration.
