What is Generation Exchange?

Generation Exchange is an intergenerational storytelling (oral history) project designed to increase social interaction between youth and older adults. Generation Exchange also offers the opportunity to preserve and carry on local history to future generations.

Through Generation Exchange, every older adult in the greater Kansas City region will have the opportunity to tell their story. The goal of this project is to create a collection of stories that document memories and experiences related to neighborhood life, historical events, and cultural experiences that shaped the lives of previous generations.
