Program Description

"With Our Youth! is an awards program created by NRTA: AARP’s Educator Community to celebrate retired educators who are working with youth in their communities."

NRTA: AARP's Educator Community is America's foremost network of 50+ adults and organizations with a passion and affinity for education and learning. Members of NRTA are dedicated to continuous educational opportunity, advocacy, and service as a means of safeguarding the economic security, work opportunities, and future well-being of all generations."

AARP's Educator Community - With Our Youth Program organizes older adults to contribute to youth in different ways.

Some of the ideas for working with youth include:

-Forming a youth safety council led by seniors.
-Volunteering with an anti-drug program for youth.
-Teaching youth financial skills such as balancing a checkbook, budgeting, etc.

Benefits of the program are that youth can foster an intergenerational relationship with seniors early in life, and older adults can provide a safe nurturing environment to help youth learn and grow.

To help generate ideas for intergenerational activities AARP's Educator Community has put together a helpful resource: ‘100 Ideas for Working with Youth.’ 

The NRTA - With Our Youth Award recognizes older adults who have given back to their communities and have made a difference in the lives of youth.

NRTA membership is free with an AARP membership which provides valuable senior benefits through the AARP Benefit Program such as senior discounts on insurance and much more.

AARP's Educator Community was initially know as the National Retired Teacher's Association and was founded by Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus to address the needs of educators in retirement.
