Our Why

Loneliness and social isolation are soaring among our older generations — but among our children and youth as well. Sometimes it feels like we’re all focusing on what divides us, rather than what unites us.

What if we could empower younger and older people to form meaningful connections to each other, share their different perspectives, and — together — make individual lives and whole communities better?

We can.

Our Mission

Empowering the Ages transforms lives through facilitating and nurturing relationships across all generations. We connect people to each other and their communities to share, learn and feel valued.

Our Vision

Communities where people from all generations contribute to each other’s well-being, feel connected and are valued for their unique skills and perspectives. 

Our Values

  • CommunityWe know that communities are stronger when all people are valued for their strengths, abilities and contributions.

  • RelationshipsWe believe mutually beneficial relationships empower all generations.

  • Partnerships – We work with individuals and groups to address problems using creative solutions.

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – We believe that being inclusive and consciously committed to equity and diversity is essential to communities and individuals reaching their full potential. 

  • Innovation – We look for ways to be nimble and evolve in order to best meet the needs of all generations in often fragile and changing conditions.
