At Champions of AgingSM, our organization's goal is to build a future workforce that has an understanding and appreciation for the complexities and individuality of the aging process.

We’re working to accomplish this goal by offering paid service year opportunities, both full- and part-time, to students in college and to recent college graduates.

Diversity & Values

At Champions of Aging, we envision helping to create a diverse workforce through program participants who represent and embrace different ethnicities, races, religions, sexual orientations, and genders.

To accomplish this, we plan to do the following:

  • Work to have ethnic, racial, religious, sexual orientation, and gender representation in service year participants and service sites that mirrors the population of the country.
  • Place a strong focus on recruitment efforts that are inclusive, embody a diverse spirit, and begin in high school. We believe investing early in the future workforce is key to developing talent.
  • Encourage feedback from service year participants and service sites and create spaces for dialogue to ensure a healthy, consistent conversation around diversity efforts.

We recognize that change does not happen overnight, but with an intentional focus and plan our goal is to help build a diverse workforce because representation matters and can help improve the quality of life for all.

PARTNERSHIPS

Good partners make a big difference in creating and executing a successful program. Building a future workforce of aging advocates cannot be completed alone and the issues around aging cannot be tackled independently or in silos. We are actively seeking service sites who can offer service participants a transformational experience in supporting the aging communities.
