Challenges are common and can be exacerbated if we do not recognize the specific characteristics of each generation. We will discuss the similarities and differences among the generations and how that impacts areas of your life. Overall, we want to provide information and encourage involvement to benefit all generations by working, learning, volunteering and living together side by side.
