The strengths of each generation must meet the needs of all generations.
— Sandy Kraemer - Intergeneration Month Founder
A Quick Overview
Fourteen years ago, a small group of people formed Intergeneration Foundation and established Intergeneration Day, an annual time to intentionally connect all ages worldwide. In 2013, this highly successful effort expanded into Intergeneration Month: September, in conjunction with the Connect All Ages Campaign.
The importance of Intergeneration Day (now Intergeneration Month) is evidenced by proclamations from 43 state governors and Puerto Rico. Generations United, the largest intergeneration NGO in the world, has participated since the beginning.

Ent Federal Credit Union
World Jurist Association

"Do You Know Scale" People who know about their family histories have the most self confidence, have a strong sense of control over their lives and believe their families function successfully.
Dr. Duke and Dr. Fivush of Emory University developed the “Do You Know Scale” to predict children’s emotional health and happiness. Leaders in other fields found similar results in studies of adult individuals, families, organizations and the military. Management experts say successful human enterprises of any kind seek to capture a core identity. answer the questions
