Staying Engaged - Volunteering, the Dual Path

A lifetime of experience comes to an abrupt halt when one retires. The expectation and the reality of retirement are a stark contrast. After retirement you expect a well-deserved rest which quickly turns to boredom. The idea of plenty of time becomes isolation. The plan to do whatever you want finds you looking for an outlet. So, the question becomes, how do you bridge the gap?   

Where can you continue to utilize your professional expertise to help others or where do you go to develop new skills? Do you want to choose a familiar path or try something new? How do you continue to feel a sense of accomplishment instead of losing your sense of purpose in your retirement years?    Working is where we find our identities, so what is the new norm once we leave the workforce? Retirees are in a prime position to volunteer in order to avert social isolation, health risks and turn those opportunities to connect into positive impacts on their physical and mental health. Enriching experiences mean a better quality of life and intrinsic value as a human being.   

Finding the right fit when choosing volunteer opportunities can provide networking, multigenerational exchanges, connectivity and personal growth. It’s reimagining aging. Volunteering is a chance to work on a project simply for the passion of it.   

The retired worker population will grow dramatically in the coming decades. Lisa’s session will provide rich insights to volunteerism, the physical and mental benefits of volunteering and practical advice on finding your retirement identity.
