Nearly half of Americans report experiencing loneliness, with younger and older generations most deeply impacted. Ben Franklin Circles bring people together to ask how they can do good in their lives and for the world. By launching a series of intergenerational Circles, we will combat isolation and engage adults 50+ in leadership roles as Circle hosts. This will give participants, particularly young people, the chance to engage in positive social activities and develop a network of support.
