Les Talents d’Alphonse is the first intergenerational platform in France.
Launched in 2016, it puts retirees (the Alphonses) in touch with younger people from their neighborhood to fight isolation and value their experience.
The concept ? Allowing everyone to learn a given skill (sewing, knitting, foreign languages…) from them or to stimulate children ’s early development through fun and educational activities. As a major player in the Silver economy, Les Talents d’Alphonse proudly records no less than 20 000 hours spent together by Alphonses and their learners and brings together a community of more than 1 000 retirees that meet every month at joyful events.
The Alphonse ecosystem also comprises a digital medium targeting the 16 million seniors living in France and providing them with plenty of suggestions, selected news and other heartwarming contents to prevent them from losing ground.
