Northland Shepherd’s Center, with its 25 years of improving the lives of adults (60+), and Oakhill Day
School, the premier private education center in the Northland which focuses on the “family” feeling
among its staff and enrollees, are moving into programmatic collaborations.
National statistics indicate that Interfacing among various generations develops social networks,
communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and a sense of purpose among all ages.
Intergenerational programs bring together diverse groups and networks and help dispel inaccurate
and negative stereotypes. From technology to preserving history, the collaborative programs set up
through the collaborative efforts of Northland Shepherd’s Center and Oakhill Day School will connect
generations and impact the community for years.
