Our Point of View

We believe that older adults are one of society’s most undervalued resources. We believe in the need for purpose and connection at every stage of life. We believe society needs new roles for older people to do what they do best — mentor and guide the next generation. And we believe that society works better when the generations to come together in ways that benefit old and young alike.

We need to remove barriers — ageism, lack of opportunity, financial insecurity — that stand in the way of making  the encore vision of purpose in later life a reality. Our team and network of thought leaders are working to make sure these issues are part of the public conversation. Here’s a taste of what we’ve been talking and writing about.
