A Common Ground Conversation
The Power of Intergenerational Learning Communities
Hope and Health Lecture Series
Join us for a Common Ground Conversation!
Saturday, July 17 at 9:30 a.m.
To continue our Hope and Health lecture series and celebrate the fifth year of the Cleveland Foundation's Common Ground series, we're hosting a conversation on Saturday, July 17th in the garden at The Intergenerational School - East.
How does school—both the physical building and the ways in which we teach—drive community connection across generations? Join teachers, families, volunteers and Buckeye residents to discuss how school can serve as the setting for meaningful connection, shared ownership and community transformation.
We will meet outdoors at our flagship school, The Intergenerational School – East, on the historic Saint Luke’s Manor campus in Cleveland’s Buckeye-Woodhill Neighborhood. Attendees will be invited to participate as listeners and storytellers while noshing on a light breakfast. Bring your children, bring your grandparents—all ages are welcome and encouraged to participate.
