Next Avenue provides resources for adults over 50 with the aim to create a new life stage that lies somewhere between young adulthood and “old-old” adulthood. This stage doesn’t have a name. They call it Adult Part 2.
You’re aware that many years of life lie ahead of you and, very likely, you have a different set of expectations for these “bonus years” than you had for earlier adulthood. You sense that you can somehow apply your knowledge and experiences in a meaningful way. Yet you may not know exactly how to achieve this new vision or see all the many possibilities available to you as you navigate the physical, health, work, and financial shifts that inevitably accompany this phase.
Enter Next Avenue: a group of public television people and journalists who, for the most part, are experiencing the very same things you are.
