America is in the midst of an age boom and with it, an amazing transition. In general, those of us over the age of 50 are expected to live longer than any previous generation.
Yes, many years of life lie ahead of you and, very likely, you have a different set of expectations for these "bonus years" than you had for earlier adulthood. You sense that you can somehow apply your knowledge and experiences in a meaningful way. Yet you may not know exactly how to achieve this new vision or see all the many possibilities available to you as you navigate the physical, health, work, and financial shifts that inevitably accompany this phase.
Enter Next Avenue. A group of public television people and journalists who, for the most part, are experiencing the very same things you are. Like you, they see both challenges and opportunities and recognize that what we could all use right about now is an abundance of reliable information that can help us figure out what's, well, next.
So Next Avenue aims to deliver that—in a way that's both smart and accessible.
