You're cordially invited to our 6 p.m., Tuesday, December 1, 2020 for a Free Zoom Online Presentation to get updated on the latest programs and volunteer opportunities at Boomers Leading Change (BLC), a nonprofit serving active 50+ older adults. To keep you safe and healthy we have dozens of remote volunteer positions that can be handled from home on your pad or laptop! We offer programs in 3 key areas - Service, Learning and Connection
SERVICE Ready to roll up your sleeves and use your talents/sills? Boomers Leading Change partners with diverse host sites to support children, elderly, immigrants/refugees, workforce development and more. Most of our volunteer positions are handled remotely so that you can work safely from home. Our partners are looking for volunteers to interact with their clients and who can help support infrastructure such as marketing, fundraising and technical support. LEARNING Join other engaged older adults in learning something new by participating in BLC's Experience U monthly educational programs and workshops with a focus on three themes: Leadership, Lifestyle and Livelihood. Each program offers a fresh topic presented by expert presenters in their fields. Some examples: downsizing/right sizing or starting a small business, job search strategies for older adults, support for people-friendly streets, and so much more! CONNECTION Grab a cup of coffee and join others for great informal conversations - birth order, what does your best life look like, car talk for classic auto buffs and so much more. Coffee, Tea and BLC meets virtually ever Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. It's always FREE!
