Generations Back Together at SUNY Cobleskill

Dr. Gail Wentworth (above, second from left) is leading Generations Together into its second season

 

Generations Together, the intergenerational support program that became the first of its kind to operate in Schoharie County when it debuted last year, hosted its first meeting of 2019 on Tuesday, March 5. The expanding program brings older adults to campus for social interactions with preschool students at the Cobleskill Child Care Center. The program is run by its founder, Early Childhood Professor and Early Childhood And Psychology Department Chair Dr. Gail Wentworth.

“‘We’re still evolving,’” Dr. Wentworth recently told “Times-Journal.” “But we’re going to stick with this to make sure we create something that’s going to be in this community for years to come. It’s that important.’”

The Institute for Rural Vitality at SUNY Cobleskill currently supports seven fellowships and six fellows, including Dr. Wentworth. Generations Together runs under the umbrella of the Institute’s Center for Community Advancement.
