Grandparents and Older Adults We’re asking you to commit to do something grand and share your wisdom, perspectives and key civic values with young people and advocate on their behalf.

Children, Youth, and Younger Adults We’re asking you to commit to do something grand and connect and serve with your grandparents or older adults in your community.

Grandfamilies: You provide a safe and loving home to your grandchildren or other relatives in your care. We think you are doing something grand for children every day of the year. As part of our week-long celebration of Grandparents Day, Generations United recognizes, honors, and thanks grandfamilies.

Intergenerational Programs: You are doing something grand every time you bring younger and older people together. We’re asking you to plan and coordinate grand intergenerational activism projects.

Together, adults and youth can reach out to decision makers and begin one of the most important dialogues in our history: discussing how, as a country, we can address the many challenges facing future generations—from literacy to health and wellness to financial stability.
