Through the Mentor Up program, AARP Foundation is looking to fund innovative, exciting and impactful intergenerational interventions that engage youth volunteers in “reverse mentoring” or service activities designed to foster positive intergenerational interactions that will help reduce the negative effects of social isolation faced by vulnerable individuals over 50. Specifically, AARP Foundation is seeking interventions that are evidence or outcomes based and operate at a local, regional or national level that focus on the following areas:

* Hunger

* Housing

* Health and wellness

* Transportation

* Income

* Social Connection

Mentor Up encourages organization’s large and small to apply for funding that can range from $25,000 – $150,000. Funding amounts awarded to grantees will be relative to an organization’s capacity and expected outcomes.
