|Abstract:||In this analytic essay, we explore how intergenerational programs can unleash the power of prevention for the betterment of all generations, and in turn, be cost-effective. In section one, we document the wide range of issues that intergenerational interventions target and identify a price tag to these social conditions. While the research is nascent, in section two, we examine the cost-effectiveness and savings of intergenerational interventions, contrasting them to non-intergenerational interventions alike. Findings from the few studies that have performed cost-effective analyses are compelling. In section three, we call for innovation in research, programs, and policies.|
