  On behalf of the National Council on Aging, I congratulate the Town of Yarmouth’s Intergenerational Age-Friendly Community team on their innovative community building program at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute today. The idea of bringing high school and university students
together with older persons has been supported by NCOA for many years, but this is a unique variation on that theme. By asking our youth to discover a purposeful lifespan that supports
aging in place through Model United Nations adaptations with generational inclusion and by adding a committee on Aging to the traditional Model UN, we are building increased opportunities for
engagement, understanding and action. It would be great to see the “Intergenerational Model United Nations” in communities across the nation.
NCOA applauds the power of “together” in community-building tools like this in collaboration with the World Health Organization Age-Friendly Community Network, AARP and other initiatives,
including the Aging Mastery Program (AMP) which began in Massachusetts and is now in 200+ communities nationwide. Have fun with this, and enjoy one another as you discover yourself,
your purpose and your community in new ways.

Sincerely,
James Firman
President & CEO
National Council on Aging
