Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging, Inc.
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Many Minnesota communities are not prepared to address the impact of the unprecedented increase in people age 65+ over the next three decades. Simultaneously, there is a surge in the availability of people 55+ seeking ways to leverage their time, skills and energy to contribute to their communities. This project will engage teams of AmeriCorps members age 55+ to assess needs and implement projects that make their communities places for people of all ages to thrive.
