|We are pleased to share a new blog, “Virtually, People of All Ages Can Prevent Elder Abuse” by Kimmy Moon, NCEA Project Coordinator and Alexis Calleros, NCEA Project Assistant. |

Youth can be at the forefront of social change to create a society free from elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation as we all age.

Over this past year and a half, stellar youth volunteers have demonstrated the immense power of intergenerational solidarity through community service and technology.
