Celebrating 40 years of service to Greater Boston


For the past 15 years, Generations Incorporated has been led with focus, vision, and passion under the stewardship of Executive Director Mary Gunn. We announce that Mary will step down from the organization on June 30, 2017, leaving behind a legacy of the importance of service and mentorship in impacting the lives of young children, families, and older adults to empower and strengthen communities.

The two-hour cocktail reception will feature a night celebrating the importance of mentorship in Mary Gunn’s life, both as a mentor and mentee. Event committee members include (but are not limited to): Tommy Chang, Superintendent of Boston Public Schools; Dianne Kelly, Superintendent of Revere Public Schools; Joshua Kraft, Nicholas President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston; Phyllis Segal, Vice President of Encore.org; Keanne Henry, CEO of AARP Foundation Experience Corps; Jason Sachs, Director of Early Childhood Education at Boston Public Schools; Doug Dickson, Founder and President of Encore Boston Network; Emily Shea, Commissioner of Elderly Affairs at the City of Boston; and Mike Festa, State Director of AARP MA.

Generations Incorporated’s Board of Directors is thankful for the 15 years of service to the organization and has engaged Third Sector New England (TSNE) to assist with the transition process. Board President Harvey Salgo states, “Generations Incorporated has grown to be a successful and highly-impactful organization under Mary’s leadership. It has been a great honor for me to serve as Board President for an organization that dives so deeply within the community to help uplift its families and young children.”

This year it is our privilege to hold our annual event in honor of Mary Gunn. Please save the date of June 1, 2017 from 6-8pm to join us in celebrating Mary's 40 years of service to Greater Boston.

Generations Incorporated

We envision a day when all children are proficient readers when they enter 4th Grade. Literacy is the key to academic success and can be a path out of poverty.

Generations Incorporated strives to improve the literacy skills of young children through Grade 3. We also provide meaningful opportunities to older adults who serve as literacy volunteers in our partner schools and after school programs in low-income communities.
