Fostering Intergenerational Conversations with GenChats

May 27, 2021
This summer, the Wallis Annenberg GenSpace is proud to host GenChats — an intergenerational program pairing Los Angeles high school students with older residents of Koreatown with for weekly conversations.

The purpose of these weekly chats is to combat social isolation by fostering intergenerational connection. Participants will share stories about living in Los Angeles. GenSpace has partnered with Loyola High School and Sierra Canyon High School to help us recruit student conversationalists. Chats will be conducted in English, Spanish, and Korean, and will take place over the phone, on Zoom, or by letter. 

GenChats will officially begin on June 21st and run through July 23rd. To sign up for this five-week program, please email [email protected] or call (424) 407-4026.


GenSpace will be offering virtual programming throughout the summer, featuring on-demand classes in cooking, exercise, tech, financial security, arts/culture, storytelling, and horticultural therapy.

GenSpace is an innovative community space for older adults, celebrating wellness, connection, and life-learning.   Our brand-new physical location in Koreatown and will be opening to the public this winter.
