This study aims to explore the impact of the bilateral intergenerational program, which is the Sedae IEum Madang Project, on intergenerational solidarity, perception changes toward the other generations, and sense of community in Korea. A one-group pre/posttest design was used and a purposive sampling method was adopted for recruiting participants. The final sample size was 53 (30 older adults and 23 younger adults). Following participation in the bilateral intergenerational program, the positive perception of younger participants toward the older adults increased and their sense of community was also improved. The implications of the study and future research directions were suggested.
