Partnership with DC Public Schools
The Office on Aging is currently seeking seniors interested in volunteering to build relationships with, mentor, and guide our District's youngest learners in DCPS early childhood classrooms. The Intergenerational Program is a joint partnership between the DC Office on Aging and the DC Public Schools Office of Early Childhood Education.
This program is designed to bring together senior citizens and early childhood students to work together on learning experiences in the classroom. It is an opportunity for seniors to share their wisdom and be socially engaged in a meaningful way as part of their community. The pilot program launched at Langdon Education Campus and will expand in other elementary schools throughout the District.
