      Ithaca College and Cornell University students provide friendly visiting services to older adults in the Ithaca community to build intergenerational relationships and recognize elders’ value as community members.

      Project Generations was founded by a group of students at Ithaca College in the fall of 2010 after forming a close partnership with the Tompkins County Office for the Aging. Cornell University established a chapter in fall of 2011 that works in close partnership with the Ithaca College chapter. Tompkins County Office for the Aging and Project Generations have been able to pair over 70 students and older adults in the Ithaca community since the program’s inception.
