Since On Lok, inc.'s inception in 1971 we have been committed to involving children in the lives of elderly participants through a variety of both unstructured and structured activities. What began as a natural extension of simple social interaction eventually grew into structured intergenerational programs, with every On Lok, inc. center including intergenerational activities in the lives of its elderly clients. Participants in On Lok, inc.'s Intergenerational Programs range in age from 2 to 102. They come together for activities specifically designed to create opportunities for the development of mutually beneficial and significant relationships.
From the exciting beginnings many kinds of intergenerational programs at On Lok, inc. have grown. For many years On Lok, inc. has worked in partnership with San Francisco schools, both public and private, pre-schools, elementary, junior high and high schools, with both general and special education classes. We provide a diverse mixture of opportunities for old and young in our community to come together, learn from each other and build mutually genuine and meaningful relationships. – less–ZoomInfo
