Michael Eisner.

Program Description

“The Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence recognizes national organizations with innovative programs that bridge multiple generations in our communities.”

“Intergenerational programs help combat age segregation, which is detrimental to our society. Without regular interaction with older or younger generations outside family, ageism creates an us-versus-them mentality that prevents us from uniting around shared goals and an integrated community.”

“Today, youth and older adults are statistically most likely to suffer social isolation and depression. Intergenerational programs bring the two groups together and leverage their strengths to alleviate these problems, giving both parties a sense of purpose and well-being.”

The Eisner Prize Fellowship supports leaders pioneering innovations in intergenerational connections. Programs can support intergenerational connection through research, programs, technology, and other avenues.

Intergenerational programs help older adults use their skills and experience towards the next generation giving seniors a sense of purpose and improved health. Children and youth benefit from having caring adults in their lives and can improve educational and behavioral outcomes. These connections result in positive outcomes for families, schools, and communities as a whole.

The foundation provides grants to organizations who promote intergenerational programs and provides financial resources, networking opportunities and more.
