Younger and older people are lonely and isolated. During the height of COVID, 44% of U.S. high school students reported experiencing chronic sadness and hopelessness for weeks at a time. It’s not over, either. The U.S. Surgeon General declared youth loneliness a national crisis that we all need to address together. Meanwhile, our older adults are socially isolated– and experience detrimental mental and physical health impacts due to this isolation.
By donating to LinkAGES, you can make a difference in the lives of both youth and older adults. LinkAGES reduces loneliness and social isolation by connecting generations through enriching shared experiences. Our programs are designed to create meaningful intergenerational relationships in which people feel seen, respected, and valued. Research proves that these connections benefit both youth and older adults.
By donating to LinkAGES, you are investing in the health and well-being of your community. You’re investing in your own future.
