Welcome to Jung & Alt e.V.
We offer Intergenerational Programs in Hamburg & surroundings.
The Core of Our Association
Granny’s Aid Service
With Grandma-Grandpa emergency team
Loving seniors look after children in emergency situations and for occasional support and activities – also for support during home office!
More Intergenerational Programs
Once Upon a Time…
Fairytale Grandmas and Grandpas for Kindergartens
Seniors go to a kindergarten in their residential area and volunteer their time and stories to children there.
Schoolchildren help elderly people in the neighborhood, for example, with gardening or shopping.
Programs for Senior Citizens
Younger people visit senior citizens in retirement homes or at home: to exchange ideas, to accompany them or to help during temporary emergencies
Dear project users and volunteers, you can always reach Jung & Alt e.V. Mon-Wed 9 a.m.-12 p.m. by phone (040) 251 77 33, even during the current contact restrictions. We look forward to your call!
As a Fairytale Grandpa, you don’t have to do that much. Once a new child asked his friend who I was and what I was doing. The boy said “Grandpa Henning has time for us.” That touched me. Just being there for the youngsters and listening – that is the most important thing.
The Granny’s Aid Service was a great help to us for many years and the encounters with the helpers – some of which even turned into friendships – a real enrichment for all of our lives. We are glad that there is such an intergenerational association in Hamburg!
I get so much in return. I can hardly describe it. It feels like family. It’s not your own family, but it’s family nonetheless.
The Granny’s Aid Service project was first launched in Germany in 1979 by Beate Schmidt. It started with a childcare service and is now an all-round service for young and old. In order to combine the different programs under one roof, the non-profit association Jung & Alt in Zuwendung e.V. was founded in 1993.
