|More To Give - Mobilizing Experienced Americans|
This web site says " A national initiative to put 100,000 adult mentors and advocates to work at the nation’s 2,000 “dropout factories” could increase high school graduation rates, putting students on the road to success while saving the nation billions of dollars.
A similar initiative to vastly increase the number of companions and caregivers could help millions of elders continue to live independently.
The two cross-generational initiatives are the centerpiece of a new report that demonstrates the potential for “experienced Americans” to tackle major social challenges, through both volunteering and paid encore careers."
Visit the web site and learn more about how you can mobilize experienced adults to support schools and volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs.

|Successfully engaging seniors - research||
from the web site:|
"In response to concern, the National Council on Aging established the RespectAbility initiative, funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies, and issued a call for "promising practices" in the area of civic engagement of adults 55 and older. The goal was simple: determine how to successfully engage seniors in important work focused on critical social problems at the community level. The investigation began by cataloging innovations in civic engagement for seniors by connecting the dots across a broad array of successful programs and community initiatives."
