OVERVIEW

We connect, train, empower, network, inspire and create real impact. And we also change the world’s view about aging.

In a nutshell, we help you make the most of your life experiences by connecting you to good causes and great opportunities. For the good of the community and for your own well-being.

Boomers Leading Change channels the skills and experience of adults 50+ toward helping others in our community live their healthiest lives. Our volunteers receive highly valuable education and training and then are connected with service opportunities in one of our programs – The BLC Volunteer Program, our Experience EngAGEd Fellowship Program, our monthly Educational Programs,  and several others for socially-conscious, active Boomers. In addition, our Connect for Health Coverage Guides help individuals and families learn about health insurance that fits their needs then find coverage through Colorado’s insurance marketplace.

By improving the health and well-being of the Greater Denver community, we are also helping ourselves stay healthy and vibrant at the same time. In fact, research shows that people who have purpose in life live 7.5 years longer. That’s a great by-product of serving others.

If you’re over 50, we help you define “what’s next” and see how rewarding, exciting and meaningful it can be. We empower you with the tools, training and resources to improve the well-being of others.

  • We introduce you to organizations that need your know-how.
  • We connect you to a whole community of peers who are committed to doing good, too.
  • We match you with service-work opportunities that matter.
  • We mobilize you for the greater good.
  • We advocate for Adults 50+, helping you leverage your skills, passion and expertise to become agents for positive change.
