Project Overview

From Age to Age is an intergenerational speaking and listening project aiming to:

• Give young people a chance to improve their communication skills, in particular giving them opportunities to use these skills in a “real-life” situation.
• Break down barriers between young and old, creating greater understanding and closer links between school and community.

The project was designed by The English and Media Centre and the pilot phases were funded by The Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Pilot projects took place in London and in Essex and we have learned a lot from these about what works. This website shares the achievements of each of the pilot projects through photos, film, podcasts, interviews with older people and examples of students’ work. The 'Teacher Resources' pages offer a toolkit so that any school can run their own From Age to Age project.
