Most Boomers will not retire. Retirement will cease to be the choice for the majority of baby boomers, according to recent research, and lack of funds is not the only driving motivation for this dramatic change. What will replace retirement? The 2young2retire course, is a four-week series that will help participants answer that question by discovering what is next for them.
The first wave of baby boomers turned 60 in 2006. The largest, most demanding, and most examined generation in history is already facing up to a future that looks nothing like their parents’ second half of life. Thanks to medical advances and information about health, baby boomers can expect to live long lives. Many are looking for direction to make the extra years, beyond the midlife drive to succeed at any cost, more personally meaningful. That’s what this course is about.
The 2young2retire course uses materials from the popular website, www.2young2retire.com and book, Too Young To Retire: 101 Ways to Start the Rest of Your Life by Howard and Marika Stone. Participants will work in small groups, addressing key issues such as money, wellness, careers, small business opportunities and community service. This powerful, interactive learning experience will help participants clarify intentions, set goals and take action, while supporting other group members who share similar objectives.
