Civic Matchmaking for the Wave of Retiring Baby Boomers: Are You Ready?

Give 5 is a first-of-its-kind, full-immersion program that teaches retired (and retiring) Baby Boomers about their community, then shows them "behind the curtain" at various nonprofits. With 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 and retiring every day for the next 17 years, the program seeks to address the growing problem of isolation by allowing participants to do a "taste testing" of volunteer opportunities in a fun and interesting way. Thus far, the program has experienced 100% placement of volunteers.

Objectives:
* Are communities prepared for the enormous demographic change that is on their doorstep?
* How can communities address five macro-trends at the same time to benefit their community?
* Can this program be replicated in other communities?
