[ARCHIVED] Corte Madera Age-Friendly Intergenerational Center GRAND OPENING


Many residents voiced concern that Corte Madera didn’t have quality programs for teens, few services for younger children and extremely limited programs for nearly 25% of our town’s population – our seniors.

Corte Madera’s Intergenerational Center will have the classroom space to provide innovative, enrichment programs for all ages. The Intergenerational Center programs will create part-time job opportunities, paid or volunteer, for those with special interests who may like to teach a certain skill or simply volunteer. Teens will have a place to hang out and so will the seniors; there will be a robust variety of programs for all. The Intergenerational Center – the IGC – will provide opportunities for the young and the older adult to interact, building relationships among all ages, enriching our lives and preventing social isolation.

There will be activities for all ages. 

  • Preschoolers: Story hour and crafts
  • Elementary school: Homework help
  • Middle School: Hang out, help seniors with tech issues, get tutoring help and tutor younger kids
  • High School: Hang out, help seniors with tech issues and tutor younger kids, Makerspace coming soon!
  • Seniors: Chair yoga, painting, movie/book club, tech help, help kids, games, art projects, drawing and watercolors, crafts, 3-D printing
