Seniors Find More to Learn
Retirement doesn’t have to be merely time off; it can be a time to gain new skills or find rewarding ways to give back to your community. Every year, the Center for Creative Retirement at the University of North Carolina at Asheville gives more than 1,800 seniors and retirees the chance to learn and get involved. At the center’s leadership training program, seniors meet with the county’s politicians, police, fire chiefs, artists, authors, and business leaders, and visit water treatment plants, community theaters, and commercial developments to find out what the community needs and how they might contribute. The center supports seniors’ engagement in activism and service projects like this one, where volunteers helped sort food at a local food bank. Check out unca.edu/ncccr.
