The Community Experience Partnership involves 32 community foundations located across the United States. These partners are working to find new ways to engage the rapidly growing population of people over 60 in activities that serve others and improve quality of life.
This initiative is demonstrating timely new ways to respond to the needs of communities—and of one of America’s most vital population groups. Partners are helping redefine traditional perceptions of aging, and creating new pathways for older adults to engage in:
- Lifelong learning and personal development
- Solving social needs through volunteering or employment in the nonprofit or government sectors
