AGE to age, launched by The Northland Foundation in northeastern Minnesota in 2008 as part of its KIDS PLUS family of programs, enables older and younger community members to work together to identify local needs and devise their own grassroots solutions. In addition to being a regional grantmaking foundation, Northland also operates the KIDS Plus programs, among other initiatives. Age to age sites are established in 16 rural communities and Native American Reservations, and spur more than 7,500 hours of volunteer service each year among adults ages 55 and older. Each site forms and implements its own action plan that brings the generations together to improve health and wellbeing for all, with support from the Northland Foundation and its funding partners. The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, is among the funder partners for Age to age. The community programs and projects include volunteering, gardening, arts and culture, preserving Native American traditions and languages, students helping older adults with technology, and older adults helping students with reading, among others.
