A Career in Aging: The Opportunity to Do Well While Doing Good

"Connect the Ages was founded by young professionals who have found their calling serving aging Americans. We are technologists, real estate developers, nurses, bankers, filmmakers, architects, educators and most importantly we are fulfilled and feel fortunate to have found careers in aging, and most of us landed here by chance. We have come to realize that, despite incredible demand, young people do not have careers in aging on their radars. We intend to change this. We are driven to bridge the gap between educators and students and the demands of an aging America. We are thrilled to unveil the opportunity of a lifetime - the opportunity to do well while doing good. Together, we will build a workforce pipeline for our grandparents, our parents and eventually ourselves."
