The Beth Johnson Foundation has published the results of a programme of young person led activity completed in 2011. The programme assessed the practical application of youth-led intergenerational initiatives in order to develop working guidelines for future initiatives.

It was supported by The National Youth Agency Intergenerational Youth Learning Network.


The report provides guidance and direction for youth-led programme planning. By adopting the lessons learned, future programme participation will be stimulated, retention improved, generational interaction encouraged, skills and experiences enhanced and lasting benefit delivered to the participants and to the wider communities in which they live.

The Executive Summary and the full Report, is now available to download below in a PDF format!
