    Overview

    OMEGA is an MIT AgeLab initiative designed to foster multigenerational connections between high school students and older adults. Students in grades 9-12 participate in monthly calls and discuss how to strengthen relationships and promote connections across generations.

    In addition to the monthly calls, OMEGA convenes several (virtual) student summits each year in an effort to encourage students to connect across generations, brainstorm and share programming ideas, and plan intergenerational activities. Students in grades 9-12 are invited to participate in the summits.

    The OMEGA summit is also an ideal time to learn about the OMEGA scholarship application process and eligibility requirements. High school juniors and seniors are invited to apply for $5000 college scholarships to recognize the efforts that they are making to create multigenerational connections. Applications are due May 9.
