This webinar was sponsored by Fuller’s De Pree Center and was recorded on Monday, March 15th, 2021 at 10AM (PT) via Zoom. You can watch the YouTube recording now.
If you’re in the third third of life, you want to make a difference that matters. You want to serve others, to make the world a better place. Increasingly, this is happening through intergenerational collaboration. As people in the third third of life invest in young people, transformation happens for those who receive and those who invest. Moreover, communities are being renewed as folks from different generations share in life, learning, and work together.
The De Pree Center is excited to host a webinar with three people who are doing innovative work bringing generations together. Their vision is moving and their stories uplifting. Mark Roberts will be interviewing Eunice Lin Nichols, Raymond Jetson, and Sherreta Harrison. As you learn about their intergenerational efforts, you’ll be inspired to think in new ways about the difference you can make in the lives of others . . . and in your own life as well.
