Programs With Purpose


Photo credit: The Eisner Foundation

Programs with Purpose support purposeful, healthy aging and provide opportunities for older adults to engage in their communities.


We highlight these programs in the hope of inspiring more such efforts and spurring funding and innovation to help older adults realize their potential for productivity and purpose. Our selections feature a range of activities, from using the power of the arts to challenge age stereotypes to mentoring programs, recreation, and encore career opportunities.
