Seeking 77 Million Baby Boomers to Change the World... Again

By December 11, 2005

Follow me on:

The first of America's 77 million baby boomers will turn 60 in January. As they reach or near retirement age, how should the boomers spend their newly acquired free time? Volunteering for community service would be a swell idea, according to the White House's Corporation for National and Community Service.

Enticing the boomers to volunteer will be the focus of a series of public service announcements (PSAs) produced by the White House Conference on Aging (WHCoA) and the Corporation for National and Community Service. The PSAs will air in January 2006 featuring profiles of baby boomers of different backgrounds. Boomers will be shown sharing their stories of how community service changed their lives and invite their peers to join them in making a difference.

The White House Conference on Aging is held every 10 years to address issues pertaining to aging in America and how to improve the lives of older Americans.
