OEA-Retired Intergenerational Mentoring Program

EDITOR’S NOTE: Each week, we feature intergenerational program ideas that were tried and successful. This series is a tool to highlight various age-optimized programs and practices. The program descriptions are provided by representatives of the programs. Inclusion in this series does not imply Generations United’s endorsement or recommendation, but rather encourages ideas to inspire other programs.

This week's cool idea is the Ohio Education Association-Retired Intergenerational Program that engages retired educators as mentors to children and training teachers.

(Check our archives for parts 1-90 | non-archived: 1, 2, 3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9)

The Intergenerational Mentoring Program is a collaborative project between the Ohio Education
Association-Retired (OEA-R) and the Ohio Student Education Association (OSEA) with the full support and cooperation of the Ohio Education Association (OEA), the National Education Association (NEA), and NEA-Retired.

Got something cool you tried that was successful? Share the inspiration. 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!
