Each day, 10,000 Baby Boomers hit age 60. Their approach to life and to aging is quite different from preceding generations. They are more active and outspoken about their needs and expectations. They don’t think about aging and don’t accept the stigma of the media’s stereotypes of seniors. Community resources, currently designed to meet the needs of today’s seniors, will not be sufficient in number, capacity or type to meet those of the NEXT generation.

A COMMUNITY-BASED APPROACH
What programs, projects and services does your community need to support you as you age? What can and will you do to ensure those are available?

Seattle Selected 1 of 10 Cities of Service

In January Cities of Service and the Rockefeller Foundation awarded the first-Ever "Cities of Service Leadership Grants" to Ten Cities to Hire Chief Service Officers

Ten cities were selected to receive $200,000 two-year grants, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, to hire a Chief Service Officer—a senior city official dedicated to developing and implementing a citywide plan to increase volunteerism and target volunteers to address their city's greatest needs.

Want to tell Mayor Mike McGinn your thoughts on the priorities for engaging volunteers? Contact the mayor at http://www.seattle.gov/mayor/contact.htm
