The Connected Foundation

Building Intergenerational Communities

We’re a national organization with chapters across the country. Join us in creating a bridge between generations!

Our Mission


By 2060, one in four Americans will become part of the senior population.

We strive to build long-term, meaningful relationships between youth and older adults through mentorship and matching, education and activities, health advocacy, and tech empowerment. Each of these programs fosters empathy and compassion across generational divides.

What We Do


We run four key programs virtually, and when it becomes safe to do so, in-person. Through each program, young people are pushed to empathize, lead, and learn from older adults and their own peers.

We asked our team why they are
passionate about intergenerational work,
what they have accomplished, and
how we strive to achieve our mission.
