Silver Kite receives Intergenerational Innovation Award from Generations United

Silver Kite Community Arts was presented with the 2019 Intergenerational Innovation Award at Generations United's global intergenerational conference on June 13. The Intergenerational Innovation Award honors an intergenerational team, organization, or community group that uses innovative intergenerational approaches to create solutions for all ages. Silver Kite was among the six honorees at Generations United's biennial conference. In addition to Silver Kite, the other honorees included: Gail Engel (Brookdale Foundation Grandfamilies Award), Dr. Ali Somers (Brabazon Award for Evaluation Research), 60 Minutes (Excellence in Media Award), Eisner Foundation (Leadership Award), and Senator Ron Wyden (Jack Ossofsky Award for Lifetime Achievement in Support of Children, Youth, and Older Adults). For three decades, Generations United’s mission has been to improve the lives of children, youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration, public policies and programs for the enduring benefit of all. Generations United is based in Washington, D.C. “We congratulate these individuals and organizations on their contributions to the intergenerational field,” said Donna Butts, executive director of Generations United. “Their efforts to build bridges across generations result in stronger communities and families that value people at all ages and stages of life.”
