Generation Two (G2):
The G2 mission is to create vibrant intergenerational friendships that promote social and emotional
strength necessary for children to learn in their classrooms, in their neighborhoods and in their
community. Through weekly 30 minute 1:1 child-centered, intergenerational play and conversation
meetings, all children in a first grade classroom meet with their G2 adult friend (you will play with
three young friends, each for 30 minutes).

serves as a mentor to provide a social outlet, model appropriate behavior and provide additional
positive support. This is a Christian, faith-based program of Rochester Youth for Christ.
