Celebrating 30 Years!


It’s hard to believe that 30 years ago this month, I launched my career as an intergenerational specialist at the Sudbury Senior Center. It’s been a long and wild adventure full of laughter, learning, teaching, amazing people of all ages and LOVE!


As I launch the next 30 years... I invite YOU to


Learn about Growing Up & Growing Old: 20 Questions about Aging this Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 6:30 PM and is part of Lexington, Massachusetts’ Diversity, Equity and Inclusion outreach.

Be inspired by Winchester, Massachusetts’ effort to become even more intergenerational. As part of their commitment to age-friendly, The Jenks, through a Cummings Grant, has engaged me as an intergenerational coach for 3 years. Together, we assembled a team of more than a dozen community members committed to uniting generations. They named themselves WIT – the Winchester IG Team! Last year, I taught WIT about IG best practices and coached them as they carried out some impactful one-time events including

  • An arts & crafts group focused on global traditions to

  • Intergenerational Bags of Love delivered with Meals-On-Wheels to

  • A forum on MLK & civil rights across the decades to

  • A Town-wide clean-up to

  • A discussion about the documentary The Biggest Little Farm.

Now in Year 2, WIT members are expanding, inviting even more community members to be part of working teams. Together, these smaller teams will design, implement and evaluate 5 programs that will engage the generations multiple times so that stronger relationships can form. If you’d like info on having me coach your town, please email me at AndreaATAndreaJWeaver.com. Stay tuned!


Grow spiritually! One of the constants in my life has been a commitment to growing in Divine Love and allowing that Love to flow through me and lead me – especially in my intergenerational career. I am beginning my second year in an interfaith seminary and expect to be ordained as a minister this spring! God is weaving together my intergenerational work and my spirituality! This year, I’m co-teaching a weekly class on praying using the multiple intelligences. If you are interested in attending, please email me AndreaATAndreaJWeaver.com.


Life is a wonderful adventure! I’m grateful for YOU and each person I meet, each experience I have. I look forward to what will come in the next 30 years!
