Welcome to Coming of Age: Bay Area!®
The Coming of Age initiative seeks to harness the talents, skills and energy of one of our most valuable resources: people age 50+. We do this in two ways: we help organizations strengthen their capabilities, and we help people 50+ explore passions, pursue lifelong learning, become community volunteers, and engage in meaningful service to the community.
