Boomers young and old are starting to think about the years ahead. Three-quarters of the 76 million Baby Boomers in the United States plan to work full or part time after age 65. Many are still focused on their families, providing care for their children as well as their parents.

With Baby Boomers living longer, healthier lives, the conventional idea of retirement is out of date. This cohort aged 50 to 65 wants to know “What’s next?”

The “Too Young to Retire” Course answers their burning question with resources, inspiration and good humor. Enlightening exercises and workbook pages as well as a comprehensive list of publications, home exchange organizations, and websites are included to assist participants in making meaningful choices.

The 2young2retire Course

Who am I? What am I doing here? Baby Boomers start asking these Big Questions, in one form or another, around age 50. What if your Big Answers could launch a whole new, more meaningful life in the years ahead?

The 2young2retire course is a process that helps you get clear about your choices and future possibilities. Working with a 2young2retire certified facilitator,” participants will discover what matters most to them and where their skills and experience could be put to good purpose.

The six areas of discovery are:

► Work that matters (paid or not)
► Being your own boss (you can do it!)
► Community activism (it’s about time!)
► Money control (at last)
► Wellness plan (quit stalling now!)
► Intelligent travel (why to go where)
