In a collaborative effort, Children FIRST will join the Ravazzin Center on Aging for a conference that merges the groups’ two separate missions: one that focuses on the helping the aging, and the other which focuses on helping the young.
The event, titled “Practice Across the Lifespan: Intergenerational Work in Action,”will take place on Wed., March 9, at Fordham’s Westchester campus from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. National policy and best practices will be discussed in lectures an breakout sessions.
