Community for All Ages Intergenerational Leadership Development Institute
The Preservation Company (a nonprofit housing organization) is the collaborative agenct for the Peekskill Community for All Ages team . In late 2007, initiatives suggested by partnering agencies were sponsored by United Way and the Benedict Foundation. The initiatives that promote an intergenerational approach to community issues include an intergenerational home maintenance program, an intergenerational newsletter and the development of an intergenerational advocacy group to promote specific transportation and housing policies. As Peekskill Community for All Ages enters its 4th year its objective has moved to a broader focus of leadership development from an intergenerational lens, while continuing to retain the programmatic aspects that highlight the benefits of an intergenerational lens and put a face to what Community for All Ages is.
